A Symmes Township woman has been indicted for robbery and escape on charges stemming from a Dec. 1 incident at the Kroger store in Deerfield Township.
Warren County prosecutors say that Loretta D. Foster, 29, was shoplifting a cart of groceries at the store on Terra Firma Drive off Mason-Montgomery Road when she bit a Kroger loss prevention officer while trying to flee the scene, raising the charge from theft to robbery.
Warren County sheriff’s deputies arrested Foster and detained her in the rear of a police car. Police say Foster freed herself from the handcuffs and asked for the window to be rolled down, claiming to be ill. She then escaped from the vehicle.
Foster appeared in Warren County Common Pleas Court Wednesday, where a judge set a bond of $50,000 in cash or bail bond. She’s scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Jan. 20.
