According to Radnor Township police Sgt. Dan Lunger, Tucker left the store with the mink coat stuffed under her dress and got into an SUV, WCAU reported.
Ferber followed the women outside and took a photograph of the SUV’s license plate, the television station reported. Police spotted the vehicle and pulled it over, and Ferber identified the women.
Police found 37 different items of clothing in the trash bags, WCAU reported.
"There were several trash bags in the back seat with clothes in them. New clothes, some of which you could see still had the security devices on them," Lunger told WTXF. "Several of the clothing items had the security devices wrapped in tin foil which was defeating the security sensors at the various locations where the clothes were taken from."
"I saw (police) lift the hatch of their vehicle and there were other plastic bags full of things, just like my coat was in a plastic bag." Ferber told WCAU. "(I) realized, 'Wow, they've had a busy day.'"
Tucker told police she had received some of the clothes from a friend in Baltimore, the television station reported.
Police said Tucker's 51-year-old sister and 79-year-old mother, who were also in the SUV at the time of her arrest, have not been charged in the case for now, WTXF reported.
