Eighteen-year-olds James Kim from Lansdale and Austin Bag of New Britain, a 17-year–old from Blue Bell, a 17-year-old from Ambler and a 16-year-old from North Wales were all arrested and later released.

Disorderly Conduct – Normandy Farms Hotel

On Jan. 10 at 11:03 p.m., police located a suspicious vehicle in the Normandy Farms Hotel parking lot on Morris Road, in which the occupants appeared to be slumped over in their seats.

Police smelled marijuana in the vehicle, and determined that there was an active warrant in Doylestown for Jocelyn Jones, a 24-year-old from Hatfield. After obtaining an accurate address at the request of Doylestown Police, Jones was released.

The vehicle’s other occupant, 22-year-old Julius Urquhart from Elkins Park, was arrested for possessing paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana. He was cited for disorderly conduct and released.

I do believe that Kohl's only employs undercover workers or something. Never seen a store catch so many thieves. How do they even financially support that? The money they save from lost merchandise I'm sure is completely offset by the amount they pay to have people look for people stealing.

@Malika, why do you think that? Maybe they have cameras and one person watching them. Maybe these idiot theives do not take the sensors off the merchandise and the detector at the door goes off. Maybe they have smart employees working the floor who actually pay attention to their surroundings as they put clothes away. Regardless, Kohls is a huge chain and I am sure they are making a lot of money, so don't worry they have accountants. Most corporations have a loss prevention department and that is what they do, they look for people who are stealing. Maybe people should read that patch more and realize, you probably shouldn't be stealing from Kohls, idiots.
