Quick arrests made after computer gear, TVs grabbed from Target store

A quick-thinking loss prevention employee and Broward Sheriff’s deputies were able to make two arrests within an hour of a theft at a Target store in Deerfield Beach, officials said Wednesday.

Surveillance video showed Jasmine Angelika McCartney, 25, of Pompano Beach, bypassing the checkout line and walking out the front door with a shopping cart overflowing with more than $2,000 worth of computer equipment and flat screen TVs, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

She left in such a hurry that she did not stop to pick up one of two TVs that fell from her cart, the video showed.

It happened about 8 a.m. Tuesday, in the Target store at 1200 S. Federal Hwy. Once outside, McCartney is seen on video loading the merchandise into a waiting gray Nissan before driving away.
