Woman steals CVS makeup by stuffing it in bra, Palm Bay police say
Police say worker asked for stolen item, she gave packaged batteries instead
A 55-year-old woman has been arrested after police say she tried to steal batteries and cosmetics from a Palm Bay CVS by stuffing it in her bra.
Linda Kay Hasen, 55, was arrested on retail theft charges on Friday after a CVS employee saw her pick up a "RoC" cosmetic item and try to walk out of the store on Palm Bay Road.
Before Hasen could leave, the employee asked her to give him the cosmetic item. She gave him a packaged battery instead. He asked her again for the "RoC" cosmetic item and she took it out of her bra and handed it over.
She was charged with retail theft.
