BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The owner of a 1.3M home in the West Delray Beach community of Lotus, arrested Friday for Grand Theft, apparently tried to steal 47 items from Target on Linton Boulevard.

When confronted by security and later police, she asked if there was anything she could do to be set free. She then allegedly tried to leave while police locked her in handcuffs.

Kimberly Schrier, according to a police report obtained by, was under routine surveillance in Target at 1200 West Linton Blvd. by Target’s asset protection team on patrol of the store. According to the report: “(The team) noticed a white female, later identified as Kimberly B. Schrier, concealing items. Schrier was observed selecting and concealing various items throughout the store. She approached self-checkout and paid for two items but not the cart full of goods. Schrier then went to Guest Services and returned a few items she originally entered the store with. Schrier then approached the store’s exit with forty-seven unpaid items in a shopping cart totaling $792.50. Schrier made no attempt to pay for the unpaid merchandise.”

The plain-clothed Target security team waited for Schrier to pass through all points of sale, then confronted her and escorted her to the security office. Police arrived and documented the following:

“Schrier apologized (and asked) if there was anything she could do. Schrier stated she “has to go,” stood up, and walked towards the door. I immediately began placing her into handcuffs. After the first was applied and during the application of the second hand, she pulled her left arm through the closed cuff and pulled away. Eventually both cuffs were applied and double locked.”

Schrier was charged with Grand Theft. She just spent $1,298,773 on a home on Dearborn River Way, in the community of Lotus, in February.
