A Dillard’s security officer observed the longtime Tucson anchor try on a $338 Eileen Fisher hoodie near a clothing rack and then conceal it inside of a sweater she had been wearing. She then purchased shoes and a few other items and attempted to leave the store without paying for the hoodie, at which point she was detained by security.
When a security officer searched Vazquez, he found a $30 pair of Kenneth Cole earrings. Asked if she had intended to steal the hoodie and the earrings, Vazquez responded, “Not at first, but I did and I have no excuses for it.”
She also told police she could have paid for the items with a credit card but decided not to.
A Tucson police officer was called to the scene and Vazquez was given a shoplifting citation and released. She is expected to be arraigned on February 22nd. She faces one misdemeanor count of shoplifting.
