Two people face felony retail theft charges - for separate incidents - after both allegedly stole merchandise from Kmart, 1915 East Third St.
Although each allegedly stole about $130 worth of merchandise, both will face felony charges because they have prior retail theft offenses, according to court records.
Elizabeth Marie Douglas, 38, of 1638 Andrews Place, has been charged with one felony count of retail theft and one count of receiving stolen property.
William Charles Harris, 23, of 304 Lookout Road, Troy, faces one felony charge of retail theft.
According to reports, loss prevention officer Kelley Hooker observed both individuals concealing items on their person. She subsequently detained them in her office and contacted state police.
Douglas was arrested on Nov. 24, after Hooker observed her placing about 10 items of clothing in a large gray pocket book and allegedly exiting the store without paying. According to police, Douglas concealed children's shirts, leg warmers, infant outfits, a hat and gloves.
She was arraigned before District Judge Gary Whiteman on Nov. 24. Douglas is incarcerated in lieu of $15,000 bail.
On Nov. 7, Hooker allegedly observed Harris attempt to steal three items - a watch, Buck knife and pair of boots.
When questioned, Harris allegedly explained that he stole the items "because he is a kleptomaniac," according to police.
Harris, who waived his preliminary hearing, will have a pre-trial conference at the Lycoming County courthouse on Dec. 24.
