Woman Charged With Stealing $10K In Dog Collars, Invisible Fencing

UNION TWP. (WWJ) – A 46-year-old woman is accused of stealing more than $10,000 worth of electronic dog collars and invisible fencing from a store near Mount Pleasant.

Kathleen Kolb, of Mount Pleasant, was arrested earlier this week and charged with first-degree retail fraud. She was released on bond and is due back in court for a preliminary exam on March 28.

Michigan State Police say an investigation began on Jan. 1, when employees from Menard’s hardware store in Union Township told authorities that there was a woman who was possibly stealing electric dog collars from the store.

On Jan. 8, employees saw the woman, later identified as Kolb, enter the store and called police. Officers arrived and detained Kolb when she tried to leave the store with the stolen goods. Police questioned Kolb and she told them she was selling the stolen items on eBay.

Police let Kolb go so they could further investigate the situation. Police later determined that Kolb had stolen more than $10,000 from the store since Oct. 2012.

On  March 21, a warrant for Kolb’s arrest was issued and she turned herself in to police.
