It happened just before 8 p.m. Spokane Valley deputies responded to the ShopKo, located at 13414 E. Sprague for a reported theft.
Loss prevention employees said a woman, later identified as Roberts, entered the store, picked up several items, including a prepaid cell phone and several makeup items, as she walked around. Roberts went into a dressing room with all the items, but when she came out, she didn’t have the phone or makeup. The employee checked the dressing room for the items, but didn’t find them. She attempted to pay for other items, but her credit card was declined and she left the store.
