UPDATE: Woman’s Cell Phone Stolen from Haughton Circle K Counter
UPDATE: Sheriff's deputies have identified and arrested an alleged cell phone thief.
Detectives received several tips about the identity of the woman seen on surveillance video taking a cell phone from the counter of Circle K on Hwy. 80.
She's identified as 37-year-old Rose Ann Wright of Princeton, and she's been charged with felony theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
ORIGINAL STORY: Bossier sheriff's deputies are searching for a trio of thieves who took a woman's cell phone from the counter of a Haughton convenience store.
On August 2, deputies were called to the Circle K at Highway 80 and Chandler Road in reference to a stolen cell phone. A woman told detectives she accidentally left her Samsung phone on the counter while buying items for her children. She was gone for about 30 minutes before she realized she didn't have the phone with her. When she returned to get it, it was gone.
Detectives looked over surveillance camera footage from the business, and saw exactly what happened. A white male and white or Hispanic female approached the counter to make their purchase. The woman noticed the Samsung phone on the counter, and picked it up and handed it to a young white or Hispanic male standing behind her. The three left the store with the stolen Galaxy S5.
The owner of the phone told deputies it's her only means of communicating, and she was awaiting a call for needed employment.
