An Elgin woman was arrested in two Hoffman Estates shoplifting cases from last year after a Target security agent went through old video. Sarah A. Eisen, 43, of the 1000 block of Apple Hill Court, was arrested around 10:30 p.m. April 15 and charged with two counts of misdemeanor retail theft. According to reports, she stole a DVD player, bed comforter and night stand lamp, value estimated at $326, from Target, 2800 N. Sutton Road, around 1:15 p.m. Feb. 26, 2012. She also reportedly stole an e-reader valued at $124 from the same Target at 9:20 a.m. May 11, 2012. She had been arrested and charged with retail theft on May 10 by Schaumburg officers at a Schaumburg Target. A security agent at the Hoffman Estates Target had been alerted to Eisen by a bulletin circulated to Target stores indicating that Eisen has been suspected of repeated thefts from Target stores in the Northwest suburbs, reports said. The security agent reviewed videos showing two thefts in the Hoffman Estates Target and agreed to press charges. An officer contacted her and, after conferring with an attorney, she turned herself in at the police department. Her court date is May 14.
