Woman Finds Relief at KMart
A 49-year-old Racine woman is facing criminal charges after she allegedly left an uncouth surprise for unsuspecting employees Monday at Kmart, 5141 Douglas Ave.OK
The woman, Melissa A. Jacobson, is accused of sneaking behind a cash register at the store and relieving herself in a box of security tags in the middle of making a return at the store, according to her criminal complaint.
Police were called at about 12:50 p.m. after an unsuspecting employee noticed a “funky” odor around the register and found that a box of 250 security tags nearby reportedly now contained feces and was leaking urine onto a mat underneath the box.
Managers reviewed security footage of the area which captured Jacobson initially enter the store and walk to the customer service desk. However, at about 10:22 a.m., the footage reportedly shows Jacobson walk to the register, loosen her pants and squat down, about a minute later reaching for paper towel, finishing and walking back to customer service. All of this reportedly occurred within sight of the restrooms, according to the complaint.
The security video shows Jacobson completing a return in sight of the bathroom and leaving the store at about 10:41, the complaint states.
