Police: Woman Arrested for Theft When She Went Back for More

A Bethlehem Township woman faces a retail theft charge after she allegedly put stolen items in her car and returned to Kohl's for more, police say.

A Bethlehem Township woman is accused of taking merchandise from Kohl's in Lower Nazareth during two visits to the store Sunday. 

Colonial Regional Police say Darlene M. Hunsicker, 50, of 3725 Trythall St. left Kohl's Sunday afternoon with merchandise that she placed in the trunk of her car. But when she entered the store a second time and tried to leave with more goods, she was stopped by a loss-prevention official, according to court records. 

The total value of the items she allegedly stole Sunday afternoon was $341.91. 

The loss-prevention official said he watched Hunsicker take a shopping cart of merchandise from the store to her red 2011 Suzuki Kizashi sedan.

She was observed going into nearby stores, then returned to Kohl’s a second time, court records say. The official watched her place multiple clothing items inside a cart. This time the official stopped her after she left without paying.

She was arraigned later Sunday on a charge of retail theft and released on $2,500 unsecured bail. All arraignments were before on-duty District Judge Diane Marakovits of Northampton.
