BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- A 19-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon for stealing hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise from several retail stores in Boise, officials say.

Boise Police say they responded to a report of theft at the 400 block of North Milwaukee Street around 4:30 p.m. Store employees say two women were seen walking into a dressing room with clothes and when they came out the items were gone. Removed tags from the clothes were found left in the room.

Detectives responded to the store and found one of the suspects in the parking lot. The other female, Amy Andrews, 19, was found at her home with more than $600 worth of stolen merchandise from several different stores.

Andrews was arrested on grand theft charge and taken to Ada County Jail.

The other woman will face similar charges.
