A homeless pair was arrested after returning Wednesday to the Belk store in The Villages from which one of them had previously stolen merchandise.
Lady Lake police were called at about 12:30 p.m. to the store at La Plaza Grande, where they confronted 38-year-old Billie Hafer and 39-year-old Michael Boles in the shoe department.
Boles was wearing a stolen pair of Under Armor shorts and a Nike shirt under his clothing. He also had a pair of socks, an Under Armor shirt and Under Armor flip flops concealed in his clothing. The total value of the merchandise was $124.98.
Hafer was found to be in possession of five grams of methamphetamine and three grams of marijuana.
Hafer on May 21 had stolen fragrance, sneakers, athletic sports wear and other merchandise valued at more than $900, but ditched it when she was approached by a loss prevention officer after she passed through the security alarm.
Both were taken into custody and booked at the Lake County Jail.
