Media Release: October 17th, 2013

On October 16, 2013, the Nelson Police Department arrested one female twice in one day in relation to two separate incidents.

The first incident occurred at 10:36 a.m., when the Nelson Police Department received a report of a shoplifter at a liquor store located in the 200-block of Anderson Street. The female suspect had left the area. The staff provided a suspect description and police officers were able to review the surveillance footage. While conducting patrols of the area the officers located the female suspect at a bus stop in 1100-block of Lakeside drive.

The Nelson Police arrested the 22-year-old female without incident and released her on a Promise to Appear in Court with a court date set.

The second incident occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m., when the Nelson Police Department received a report from a Supermarket located in the 1100-block of Lakeside Dr., reporting that they had a female shoplifter in custody.

When officers arrived, on scene, they realized it was the 22-year-old female they had released only hours earlier. Due to the recidivism, the female suspect remained in custody to appear before a judge. Her first court day will be October 17, 2013.
