Shoplifter pepper-sprays security guard at store in Kendall, police say

A shoplifter pepper-sprayed a security guard earlier this month at a store at The Palms at Town and Country, authorities said.

The incident was reported June 17 at Forever 21's even cheaper F21 RED store.

According to an incident report, a woman saw the thief putting clothes into a shopping bag without paying for the items and notified the store's security guard.

Miami-Dade police recently released surveillance video that shows the shoplifter pepper-spraying the security guard before taking off with a bag full of stolen merchandise.

 

It's unclear how much the merchandise was worth. 

According to an incident report, the store was evacuated because of the chemicals in the air.  

Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
