2 cited for shoplifting become crime victims
OGDEN, Utah (AP) - December 19, 2011 (WPVI) -- Police in Utah say a vehicle was burglarized outside an Ogden store while its owners were being accused of shoplifting from the business.
Police told the Standard-Examiner of Ogden and Deseret News that 36-year-old Eldon Alexander and 47-year-old Korin Vanhouten were released after being cited in the theft of small-ticket items worth about $25 from a WinCo Foods store.
Police say the two then walked into the parking lot and discovered the theft of a stereo amplifier, drum machine and other items valued at about $60 from their vehicle.
Investigators say the two flagged down the officer who cited them as he was leaving the store, and the officer took a crime report from them.
The car burglary occurred while the officer's car was parked nearby.
