Three senior citizens were allegedly caught red handed trying to steal from a Stockton Costco store, according to authorities.
Dora Mae Lewis, Sandra Denise Williams and Susan Diane Lockette Gibson loaded their cart with liquor bottles and other items and attempted to walk out of the store without paying, according to the Stockton Police Department.
When security confronted the three senior More..citizens, the situation became ugly.
"One of the females became combative with the employees that were trying to stop them," said Pete Smith from the Stockton Police Department. "She began swinging a full liquor bottle at one of the employees."
As the confrontation escalated in the parking lot, another suspect allegedly tried to return the stolen merchandise back in the store.
Police say the three ladies are now facing robbery and burglary charges.
