Augusta woman arrested after store theft attempt

  • Follow Crime & courts

A woman was arrested on Thursday and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor after she and four juveniles were caught trying to shoplift from Sears Department Store at the Augusta Mall.

According to Richmond County jail records, officers arrested Doreen L. Goldson, 27, currently a resident of the Red Carpet Inn at 2050 Gordon Highway.

A store employee told officers that at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, four juveniles were caught on a surveillance camera taking MP3 players from the electronics section and concealing them in their clothing and handbags, according to a Richmond County sheriff's report.

The surveillance recording showed the woman walking up to the juveniles while talking on her cell phone. The woman was facing one of the juveniles when he took an MP3 player and concealed it in the front of his pants. T

The woman did not take any action to stop the juvenile and continued to watch and do nothing as the other children shoplifted MP3 players as well.

 Three of the juveniles were the woman's siblings, and one of the juveniles was the woman's daughter, the report states.

Ah...the family that steals

Ah...the family that steals together, stays together. Family values, you can't beat that. Doreen got a $6800 bond for contributing to the deliquency of a minor.

It's a shame that the Red Carpet Inn gift shop doesn't carry these items. Or at least they could have them at the front desk available for sign out and use by their guests.

F-100, that's funny. In the mid 80's, I met up with a traveler that had counterfeited 7 million dollars. Only 4 mil was recovered. Wonder how long it takes to go through 3 million?

You know, it's one thing to steal if you're hungry and have no food or cold and have no warm coat. It's another to steal an MP3, for heaven's sake! Maybe they were really entrepreneurs and were going to start their own business. NOT>

Those that aren't aware, you

Those that aren't aware, you can go to the Augusta website, and find the quick link to the Sheriffs office inmate inquiry to see the full list of who is being held or the recently arrested. This is a very useful tool and it gives you pertinent info along with their mugshot. I have the link on my profile page under favorite websites for speedier retrieval.

It's entrapment. Sears had MP3 players and she didn't. The temptation is too much. BTW, isn't this what we voted for? "Spread the Wealth"

Isn't this the same person

Isn't this the same person who went to charity organization at Christmas and got free gifts for her children? She probably didn't get what she was ENTITLED to. So tragic. And even worse, she just blew it trying to get a retail job and the next step below is a mall cop. Well, once she gets out of jail, I guess being a speed bump is all that is left. As she was being placed in the cop car, her screaming words were, "Yes I can! Yes I can!" BTW...fisherman960...thanks for the great link.
