Police looking for woman who trashed FL convenience store after being detained for stealing

One supposes it could be termed “unfriendly persuasion.” That’s the technique used by a woman who was caught attempting to liberate $11 worth of candy in a Florida convenience store and was detained by the owner. The Smoking Gun explains:

A woman spent nearly 10 minutes trashing a Florida market after the owner caught her stealing candy bars and locked the front door, according to surveillance video.

In a bid to identify the suspect, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office today released the above video showing the woman throwing items around the Shell convenience store during the March incident.

Ultimately, to prevent further damage, an employee unlocked the door and the woman bolted. Her actions were captured on four separate surveillance cameras, as shown below:

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the woman’s identity to call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, while the local Crime Stoppers is offering a possible reward of up to $3000.
