A San Francisco woman was arrested for four felonies and one misdemeanor after a Dec. 19 shoplifting incident at Nordstrom, according to police reports.
Laura Ann Nickel, 32, was pegged by store security as a suspicious woman who was seen carrying a number of items along with a large black bag, reports said. She took several jackets into the fitting room, where a store security guard heard what sounded like clipping sounds. After she left the fitting room, the guard found a security tag stashed in another jacket.
Nickel was arrested for shoplifting a jacket valued at $190. During a search, police turned up nine counterfeit bills -- two $20s, four $10s and three $5s -- along with methamphetamine and a pipe.
That led to felony arrests to burglary, possession of burglary tools, forgery and methamphetamine possession, all felonies, and a misdemeanor count of paraphernalia possession. Nickel was arrested at 7:39 p.m. in the 1600 block of Stoneridge Mall Road.
