Tips called into the Crime Solvers Hotline led to the arrest of a shoplifting suspect. The Winchester/Frederick/Clarke Crime Solvers Hotline received around 25 tips last week after the Winchester Police Department released a surveillance photo of a suspect in a felony shoplifting. Jeanette Marie Barrett, 37, of Inwood, West Virginia was arrested around 4:30 Monday afternoon. Barrett is charged with one felony count of shoplifting.
Winchester Police Officers responded to Kohl’s, located in the 2100 block of South Pleasant Valley Road, around 5:30 p.m. on January 19th in reference to a shoplifting. A white female could be seen on surveillance cameras taking around $300 worth of jewelry and then leaving the store. She left in a grey four door sedan with a West Virginia license plate.
The Winchester Police Department would like to thank the public for its assistance in identifying the suspect in this case.
