A woman was escorted out of Worthington after allegedly stealing a package from the front porch of a business on the 600 block of High Street, according to a Worthington Division of Police report.
The woman allegedly picked up a package left at the front door of the business at 2:14 p.m. March 21.
A witness who worked at a nearby business asked the woman if the package was hers, and the woman said it was. Two of the employees of the other business were skeptical and started to follow her, and they took pictures of the woman before police officers arrived.
Officers caught up with the woman, who repeatedly had denied stealing the merchandise but then confessed she stole the package and discarded it shortly after taking it.
She was detained and taken back to the scene of the alleged crime, where no tenants of the building nor the landlord were expecting any package, which contained two $50 aluminum laptop stands.
They all declined to press charges, and officers escorted the woman out of Worthington and into Columbus.
