The first incident occurred at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the store, at 1135 Knox Ave. Jackson, of the 400 block of East Boundary, and two other women removed $196 worth of alcohol from shelves and placed them in purses.

Again, at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Jackson, an Augusta man, and an unknown woman placed bottles in a purse and left without paying. The items were valued at $551.

Jackson and the man, who hasn’t been charged, were identified from a Feb. 20 shoplifting incident. Jackson was booked into the Aiken County Detention Center on a shoplifting charge.
