A Cogan Station woman was charged Saturday with retail theft after allegedly stealing groceries from Giant in Loyalsock Township.
If found guilty, this will be her 15th retail theft conviction, according to court records.
Linda Jean Ergott, 49, of Cogan Station, faces charges of felony retail theft and a summary charge for driving on a suspended license.
State police responded to a report of a retail theft at Giant.
There they spoke to Amanda Miller, customer operations manager for the store.
Miller told police that another customer had called her attention to a woman who allegedly had walked out of the store without going through a check-out line.
Miller then went outside to speak to the woman - identified as Ergott - and explained that she needed to see her receipt.
Ergott allegedly responded, "Not today." She then got into a vehicle and left the parking lot "in a hurry," according to reports.
Miller took the license plate number from the vehicle as it pulled away and provided it to police.
The vehicle was registered to Michael Ergott. After obtaining his address, police went to the residence to speak with Linda Ergott.
According to court documents, when troopers arrived at the Ergott home, the accused said she knew why they were there and told them "she stole groceries from Giant Foods this morning."
The accused was arraigned before District Judge Gary A. Whiteman on Sept. 8. She remains incarcerated in lieu of $10,000 bail.
