UPDATE (April 10):

Baltimore County Police have identified the shoplifter that hid from police above a ceiling in a Giant food store on Wilkens Avenue 21228 as 24-year-old Megan Elizabeth Kestner of the 800 block of Giles Street 21078. She has been charged with theft, CDS possession, and second-degree assault. She was released on her own recognizance.

Just before 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, police responded the store for a shoplifting call. When police arrived on the scene, they could hear someone moving around above the ceiling of the store.

The investigation has indicated that Kestner was stopped by Giant loss prevention agents when she took a bag of Utz chips ($2.50) and various hair accessories ($6) and attempted to leave the store without paying for them.

The loss prevention agents took Kestner to the loss prevention office but she ran off when agents found needles in her purse. They were able to stop her again in the middle of the store, but she fought the agents: biting one of them in the back. Kestner escaped, climbed up onto a catwalk, and disappeared into the ceiling.

Just after 10 p.m. Kestner was located above the ceiling area in the front of the store. She was safely recovered and taken to the Wilkens precinct for processing.

UPDATE (April 8 1:56 p.m.):

The suspect taken into custody yesterday after hiding from police for hours above the ceiling of a Giant on Wilkens Avenue has not had a bail hearing yet. The suspect's information will be release once the bail hearing is completed.

Original release (April 7):

Just before 3 p.m. this afternoon, police responded to a Giant food store in the 4600 block of Wilkens Avenue 21229 for a shoplifting call.

Officers learned that loss prevention personnel at the store had detained an adult female for shoplifting. She ran from them, climbed on top of some items, and made her way into the area above the ceiling. The store was closed for the safety of the public while police searched for the suspect.

Just after 10 p.m. the suspect was located and taken into custody. She will be taken to the Wilkens precinct for processing.

Baltimore County Police are asking for the publics’ assistance in identifying a woman involved in several incidents where stolen checks were cashed at local M&T Banks.

On February 27, a female suspect came to the drive through window at an M&T Bank in the 4600 block of Wilkens Avenue 21229. She presented a check to get cashed to the teller along with a drivers license that matched the information on the check. The teller cashed the check, giving the woman several hundred dollars. It was later learned that a book of checks, that included the check presented, and the driver’s license presented had been stolen from a vehicle in Baltimore City sometime on February 26 or February 27. That incident had been reported to Baltimore City Police.

On March 17, the female suspect came to the drive through window at a different M&T Bank in the 4600 block of Wilkens Avenue. She presented a check to get cashed along with the same driver’s license used in the February 27 incident. The check was for a different account and bank than the first check. The check was made payable to the person named on the driver’s license. The check was cashed and the suspect was given several hundred dollars.

On March 18, the female suspect came back to the first bank’s drive through window and presented the same drivers license as before along with a check for the same bank and account as in the March 17 incident. The check was made payable to the person named on the driver’s license. Since the name on the license was now flagged, the teller told the suspect that she would have to come inside to complete the transaction. The vehicle then drove off without getting any money, but leaving the check and driver’s license behind. It was learned that the check had been stolen from a car in Howard County.

The license the suspect left at the bank was returned to the rightful owner.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-887-0872. Tips can also be submitted on-line or emailing iwatch@baltimorecountymd.gov.
