Locals Face Shoplifting Charges in Lacey

A Toms River woman and two juveniles have been arrested for shoplifting in two separate incidents.

Lacey police arrested 20-year-old Jessica Bachefski of Toms River on Nov. 28 after they say an asset protection officer at the Lanoka Harbor Walmart store alerted them that a female shopper placed several items into her pocketbook and attempted to leave without paying.

The items allegedly stolen included four cell phone cases, eyebrow makeup, two eye shadows, three "Phone Bling” screen protectors, RMI GeMONO, elastic hair ties, nail polish, and HC Mini Lash.

Bachefski was transported to Lacey Township Police headquarters where she was fingerprinted and photographed, police said. She was also issued a summons for shoplifting and released awaiting a court date.

The total value of the stolen property was $75.13, police said.

The following day, two juveniles – a male and a female – stole approximately $60 worth of electronics from Kohl's, police said. The pair are also suspected of having stolen numerous electronic items valued at over $900 on Sunday, Nov. 17.

A third male juvenile, who has been identified, was involved in the theft that occurred on Nov. 17, according to police.  Complaints from both incidents are pending for all three juveniles.

I say its time for Walmart & Kohls to have "receipt checkers" at the doors, especially this time of year. every other day there is a shoplifter report on patch concerning these stores. Maybe this would deter some of these dirtbags.

Really, eyebrow makeup, nail polish, hair ties, eye shadow an mini lashes??? I didnt realize therewas such a demand for these items. Why would you risk a criminal record for a few cosmetic items

@makemyday, the receipt checkers wouldnt really work in most cases as MOST of the shoplifting is done by hiding it in a purse or something like it. Plus, receipt checkers have no right to check your receipt. You can just walk by them and say no. Only in big box stores where you sign up for a membership can they force you to show a receipt as you wave your right to privacy when you sign up

and before people freak out at the idea that checking receipts isnt an invasion of privacy, you must remember that these are normal civilians. a person cant just walk up to you and force you to show them something in your bag.
