WOMEN LAUNCH FRAUD SCHEME AT CAROLINA PLACE MALL
Armani Cloud, 19, Oshea White, 20, and Ayonna Cloud, 21, were all arrested for their involvement in a fraud scheme at Carolina Place Mall near Charlotte, NC.
The girls waited until the mall was almost closed to execute their scheme.
On February 6 at 8:30pm, authorities responded to Carolina Place Mall at the Belk department store.
Belk loss prevention agents observed on CCTV Oshea enter the dressing room with a large bag carrying items with Ayonna. Both exited the fitting room without any Belk items in hand. Oshea was carrying the large bag.
Armani joined the crew once they passed the point of sale, mall security and loss prevention agents then made their move to stop the thieving girls.
The large bag in Oshea's possession was lined with aluminum foil to prevent the activation of the anti-shoplifting sensors.
In the bag, mall security found Rue21 merchandise and stolen expensive Belk merchandise. Armani had previously been banned from Belk and was therefore trespassing.
Ayonna assisted by handing items to Oshea. Armani assisted by being the lookout, she advised Oshea to run when mall security was seen.
All three suspects were arrested and taken into custody. Once in custody, Oshea told officials that she has no income.
Less than 30 days ago a man was killed inside Carolina Place Mall during business hours.
