Police arrested a Kenosha woman after she was accused of taking close to $200 in cosmetics and bath items from a local drug store.
The 23-year-old woman was taken into custody following the 8:13 p.m. incident on Tuesday at CVS Pharmacy, 3726 22nd Ave., according to a Kenosha Police Department report. Police recommended a charge of retail theft.
According to the report, the store clerk noticed the woman's suspicious activity in the store and reviewed her actions on a surveillance camera as she was leaving. The woman returned to pick up a shoe that had fallen off her child while she was in the store, and the clerk was able to take down the license plate on the woman's vehicle.
An officer then tracked the items to the woman's home. Initially, store officials said they would not pursue charges if all the items were recovered.

The woman then returned some "bath bombs," and she was arrested, according to the report.
