A 25-year-old Milwaukee woman brought her own hamper to and filled it with items while shopping at the store with her 3-year-old daughter.
Only problem was the woman tried to leave before paying for those items.
According to the report, Susan Bryson admitted to police she took nearly $200 of miscellaneous boys clothing items without paying for them with the intention of returning them to the store for cash.
Bryson was with her 3-year-old daughter, and when police received permission to retrieve the girl’s car seat from Bryson’s vehicle, they found plenty of evidence to suggest this wasn’t Bryson's first shoplifting experience.
Inside the car, according to police, were several torn clothing tags, portions of security sensors and a bag made of duct tap, commonly used to conceal clothing items with sensors by preventing the alarms from going off when exiting the store.
Bryson has multiple prior arrests for retail theft and open retail theft cases in Waukesha County and Sauk County. She was charged with one misdemeanor count of retail theft in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Monday for the TJ Maxx incicent.
