3/16/2017 - Shoplifters Caught, Attempt A Getaway -
More Information Our local law enforcement officers have been busy dealing with shoplifters the last few days. On Monday afternoon, just before 2:30, Antigo Police were called to Fleet Farm where employees had some accused shoplifters trapped in a car. Police say the employees told them a woman in the car put stolen property into her purse and removed the tags from a jacket, wearing it out of the store. They caught up with the woman and her two friends after they got into the vehicle, and held them there for police. While police went inside the store to watch surveillance video, the folks in the car made a break for it. They didnt get away with it, though, they were pulled over on Highway 45 near County Road N. and the woman was taken into custody.
