Union Police are Searching for a Shoplifting Suspect

Union Police are searching for a shoplifting suspect. A Wal-Mart security guard attempted to stop a 28-year-old woman from Labadie after noticing the woman concealed several items in two purses. When the suspect was confronted, she fled toward highway 50 and dropped a gallon of milk but held on to the stolen items. The suspect’s vehicle information was obtained by Union Police and was later stopped by sheriff’s deputies near Hwy. 44 and Gray Summit. The woman was not located at the time of the stop but personal items belonging to the suspect were found and secured as evidence. The suspect has prior encounters with law enforcement and active warrants for her arrest.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
