Prior to Christmas, a Target store in Michigan was doing an event for local disadvantage children. It was called “Shop With A Cop,” where around 15 officers were helping 22 kids picked out presents for their families. Two women, Keiana Wilson and Dana Johnson, didn’t get the memo. These ladies allegedly tried to make off with around $1,900 worth of electronics from the very same store that was loaded with police at the very same time…and the Apple watches, gaming system and iPads never even made it to the parking lot.
