A Lemoyne woman has been arrested for theft at a borough hardware store.

West Shore Regional police said a tip led to the arrest of 50-year-old Mary Jane Mattie, who was taken into custody at her home Thursday and processed on a charge of retail theft.

Police had been investigating an incident where a woman had attempt to return
merchandise at Ritter's Hardware, at 1200 Market Street, but took the items and left the store Tuesday when she was questioned
by an employee.

A review of store security video indicated that
the woman had been in the store earlier in the day, when she apparently
stole the items she tried to return, police said.

Police had released a surveillance photo from the store in hopes that someone would recognize the woman.
