COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. – The Sheffield Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying a woman accused of trying to do some Christmas shopping without paying. Two pictures have been released by Sheffield police. Detectives say the woman featured in them tried to steal from a retailer. Earlier this month, police say the woman went into Dollar General on South Montgomery Avenue and tried to hide several items on her person. When employees confronted her – she took off.

According to police, many of the items she was trying to steal were dropped. Despite not getting away with anything, police say attempting to steal is still a crime and she was caught on camera.
