Sex Shop Claims Job Applicant Stole Toy

DECATUR, Ala. -- A sex shop planned to file an arrest warrant for a woman who allegedly left the store without paying for a toy but who left a good lead on how to find her: She had just filled out a job application.

"I thought, that is a classic case of dumb-crook news," said Jamie Hudgins, a sales clerk at Pleasures.

She said the 22-year-old Decatur woman entered the store with two friends at 12:30 p.m. Monday, completed a job application and browsed the store before leaving. The anti-theft alarm at the exit sounded as she left. She then pulled the $22.12 worth of merchandise from her purse, tossed it on the floor and fled, Hudgins said.

Hudgins said an attachment for the sex toy remained in the woman's purse.

Hudgins told The Decatur Daily in a story Wednesday that the woman's mother offered to pay for the items but the store would not be lenient. She said the store also plans to seek harassment charges against another woman who called the store in connection with the alleged shoplifting.
