Starke, Fla. -- (KGW News) A woman was ordered by a judge to hold a sign telling the world she stole from a local merchant as part of her punishment.
Deputies say 21-year-old Tia Grissett and 23-year-old Isaac Simmons attempted to steal two air purifiers from a Wal-Mart Supercenter located at 14500 S. U.S. HWY 301 in April.
A Loss Prevention officer noticed Grissett and Simmons loading two boxes of new air purifiers into their vehicle. The officer asked them if they had a receipt for the items. They told the officer they did not have a receipt because they were attempting to return the items, according a report from the Starke Police Department.
Grissett and Simmons agreed to return to the store to verify their story using video surveillance at the officer's request.
