Jennifer Torres: Alleged Target Shoplifter Goes for Mugshot of the Day
Jennifer Torres, not attracting attention.
If your plan is to shoplift from Target, we'd assume you'd want to be discreet. Blend in with the crowd, don't attract attention, that sort of thing.
And maybe Jennifer Torres's look is what the typical Harlingen Target shopper is sporting these days. Still -- for whatever reason -- store security noticed her and Joe Ortega stealing merchandise about 9 a.m. last Thursday, cops say.
They allege Torres, 20, would hand merchandise to Ortega, a 21-year-old who isn't exactly nondescript either. He would then cut open the items, stuff the goods in his pockets and walk out past the registers.
Among the loot taken were "digital camera, MP-3 player, memory card, sunglasses, and other miscellaneous items totaling $294.86," police said.
Here's Ortega's mug:
The pair face Class B theft charges.
