Denton officers nabbed a trio of shoplifters Sunday, foiling an attempt to steal multiple items from a retail store, police said.
Officers responded to the shoplifter call in the 1500 block of South Loop 288 on Sunday evening and made contact with loss-prevention officers who were holding three female suspects — two adults and one juvenile.
The loss-prevention officers said all three suspects allegedly took items from the cosmetic and clothing departments and other areas of the store and concealed the items in their purses before walking out.
When loss-prevention officers stopped the suspects and retrieved the merchandise — over $50 dollars worth each — the suspects gave false names and dates of birth, police said.
When a school ID card was found hidden in their clothing, they admitted their true identities.
The two adults were transported to the city jail and the juvenile was transported to the county juvenile detention facility after the Denton officer completed her city detention report.
2600 block of Pinto Drive — Officers were dispatched to what was deemed a possible domestic violence call.
The caller told dispatch that he had received a call from his daughter and ex-wife and that while no one said anything to him, he could hear yelling and a commotion in the background.
Upon arrival, the officer made contact with the mother and it was immediately obvious that she had injuries to her face and arms, the report stated.
The daughter had already left the house but was located a short time later a few blocks away.
During the course of the officer’s investigation, it was determined that the daughter had allegedly assaulted the mother and used a knife to threaten her.
The daughter was placed under arrest for aggravated assault family violence with a weapon and transported to the city of Denton jail, the report said.
