Woman Suspected As Topless Shoplifter Surrenders To Arcadia Police

ROSSMOOR (CBSLA.com) — A 45-year-old woman turned herself in to Arcadia police Monday in connection with a June shoplifting incident at the Westfield Santa Anita mall.

But what really sets this case apart is that the woman, during a violent scuffle with a security guard outside over her purse, somehow lost her shirt and bra.

Police say the woman left behind her purse, stuffed with stolen merchandise, and ran topless to her white Mercedes-Benz parked nearby.

A witness recorded the woman’s license plate as she drove off, police reported.

Investigators found the woman’s driver’s license inside her purse.

They identified the woman as Jeannie Hua, who turned herself in to police Monday. She was booked and released on $20,000 bail.

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5151. Anonymous tips can be left by calling (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or by texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the tip web page at Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers.
