Women remove license plate during mall theft
Four women are facing charges of retail fraud, conspiracy to commit retail fraud, possession of stolen property and falsifying information to hide identity, according to a police report.
Police said the women stole more than $2,200 in merchandise from Home Depot, Bath & Body Works, Osh Kosh B'Gosh, Marshals, Coach and Under Armour from Tanger Outlets in Howell.
