Two Steamboat teenagers were arrested for theft from some businesses in downtown Steamboat Springs this spring. They were shoplifting. One of the stores was Fringe Boutique. Owner Pam Pole says it is lost income for her business, and that it’s even more upsetting since she supports the teams and schools with events like after prom.
The teenagers also went down to All That. Owner Kim Bates says she knew items were taken from her business, so she went down to Mary Jane’s to see if the girls were there. They were. That’s when police were called. Bates says it was disappointing.
Steamboat Police Sergeant Jeff Wilson says all store owners should be aware of shoplifters as we head into the busy summer season.
