Falls shoplifting trio targets liquor and dollar stores

NIAGARA FALLS – Three shoplifters interrupted at the Family Dollar store on Niagara Falls Boulevard Friday night also are suspected of stealing from a nearby liquor store earlier, police said.

A security guard told police three women – ccompanied by a small child – fled the store about 8 p.m. when he began following them following a suspected shoplifting incident. One of the three returned to the store shortly after leaving, but fled again when the security guard approached – dropping two packets of air fresheners as she jumped into a waiting gold Ford Taurus.

Police believe the three also had targeted Supermarket Liquors on Niagara Falls Boulevard. An investigation is underway.
