Lesson 27: The Woman Shopper

Nowadays, some shops are very large and sell many kinds of things. They are often crowded and it is easy to steal things without being caught.

In one such large and crowded shop, the store detective watched a well-dressed woman. He knew that she always came into the store on Monday mornings when it was full of shoppers.

On this Monday morning, there were fewer people in the shop than usual. So when the woman entered, it was easier for the detective to watch her.

The woman first bought a few things. After a while, she chose one of the most expensive dresses in the shop and handed it to an assistant, who wrapped it up for her as quickly as possible. Then the woman simply took the parcel and walked out of the shop without paying for it.

The store detective stopped the woman and asked her open the parcel. He called the police and the woman was arrested.

The detective found out that the shop assistant was the woman’s daughter. The girl “gave” her mother a free dress once a week.
