Two people have been charged with fraud after changing price tags at a big-box retail store shortly before midnight Monday, police said.

A 19-year-old female and 20-year-old male were reportedly removing price tags on low-priced items and attaching them to higher-priced items in an attempt to defraud the store located in the 1500 block of Loop 288, Denton police reports show.

The two were arrested and taken to jail on charges of fraudulent concealment of writing, police said.
