PADUCAH, Ky. -- Three young women, including one juvenile are facing charges for stealing more than $3,500 worth of merchandise from Kohl's in Paducah.

Whitney L. Morgan, 22, of Jefferson Street, and Teesheona L. Williams, 19, of Olivet Church Road, were both arrested on a charge of felony theft by unlawful taking (shoplifting); and a 17-year-old girl was also taken into custody on a charge of felony theft by unlawful taking (shoplifting).

Kohl's' loss prevention officer called police after the three were seen on surveillance concealing items from throughout the store in bags and shopping carts. One of the three left the store and got into a silver Ford Fusion with no license plate.

Morgan and Williams were booked into McCracken County Regional Jail. The 17-year-old was cited and released to her guardian.
