Two off-duty police officers from out of town spotted three shoplifters at the Osage Beach Premium Outlet Mall on Saturday. Two women and a man from St. Louis are being held in the Camden County Jail after being caught in Camdenton with a van load of stolen items.
Sergeant Arlyne Page says the stolen merchandise is valued at over $6,000. Two off-duty officers spotted the suspects emptying shopping bags in a van and then heading into a store with the empty bags. They called store management and when the three left with full bags in hand, they followed them until officers were able to pull their van over.
