MARCO ISLAND, Fla. Two women were arrested Friday for their alleged roles in a retail theft scheme, the Marco Island Police Department said.
Ofelia Orta Dmitrishin, 38, Amarilys Hernandez-Garcia, 45, both of Naples, and three other employees of the Bealls Outlet Store at 684 Bald Eagle Drive have been accused of stealing $1,975.11 worth of merchandise from the store, police said.
Surveillance footage from last week showed one employee purchasing merchandise while another worked as a cashier, according to the police department. The merchandise was voided off the sale, but still placed in the bag without payment.
The scheme had been going on since February.
Dmitrishin, Hernandez-Garcia and the other employees involved were fired, police said.
It’s unclear why only Dmitrishin and Hernandez-Garcia were arrested.
The investigation is still ongoing, the police department said.
Dmitrishin and Hernandez-Garcia both bonded out of jail Saturday and are facing felony retail theft charges.
