Woman accused of shoplifting from Target turns herself in

A woman accused of shoplifting from two stores in the Target Upstate time with her four young children is now in custody.
Just before noon Friday, Tracy Michelle German, 720 Crestfield Road, Greenville, surrendered to deputies at the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. The 36-year-old was taken to the Greenville County Detention Center, where they await a bond hearing.

In Greenville County, German is charged with shoplifting goods worth $ 2,000 or less and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to arrest warrants.

Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Tony Ivey said a shoplifting warrant also was signed by Germany in connection with an incident at the target on H. Warren Abernathy Parkway last week.

In that incident, a woman entered the store with four small children, filling three shopping carts. When she was talking to a cashier, one of the children pushed one of the carts from the store before the items were purchased, according to report an incident.

The woman then told the cashier that she had to go to the bank, and she left the store without paying for the items, the report says. The more than $ 1,300 in stolen merchandise included a Nintendo DS Lite, a PSP and PlayStation 3 game console, four Nintendo DS games, seven CDs, various cosmetics and nearly $ 500 value of clothing.

In Greenville County, a member of the Target on Fairview Road in Simpsonville told deputies that a woman who the employee identified as the German for "a large number of cases of shoplifting in the past," and her children enrolled at the store Monday afternoon.

According to report an incident, the children left the store with a cart full of stuff without paying. Stolen items included swimsuit, a camcorder, various CDs, and many other garments.
