MESA, AZ - A Mesa woman took refuge in a dumpster Saturday after shoplifting several bottles of perfume from an Ulta store, according to Gilbert police.
Debra Green, 37, hid in the dumpster on the northeast corner of Javelina Avenue and Horne Street after fleeing from the Ulta Store near Baseline Road and Horne, police said.
Green fled northbound on Horne after an Ulta employee tried to detain her, police said.
Officers were reportedly able to confront Green, take her into custody, and recover several bottles of perfume from her purse without incident.
Police said charges of felony shoplifting are being forwarded to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.
