Troy police cited a 68-year-old Bloomfield Hills woman Saturday afternoon after she was allegedly caught in the act while trying to steal from a Target store — and police believe the suspect was involved in multiple such thefts over the last three months.

The alleged theft took place about 2 p.m. at the Target on the 1300 block of Coolidge.

The suspect was allegedly caught trying to steal about $20 of goods. Police say she'd done so successfully, three times, since April.

On April 22, she allegedly took about $30 of goods; five days later, $27 worth; and on May 16 she allegedly took about $8 of goods without paying.

The suspect was released at the scene and now faces four counts of third-degree retail fraud.
