EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - As the saying goes: desperate times call for desperate measures, but the items being stolen now aren't the usual high-ticket items.

Officials said the bad economy might be leading some to steal items worth only a few bucks.

"If you do this, most of the time you do get caught," EPD Detective Bob Wies said.

A rash of shoplifting cases in Vanderburgh County has landed several in jail, and the items stolen aren't the high priced items you'd imagine.

"They don't make a lot of money, they didn't think it was so wrong to take something that wasn't so expensive," Wies said.

Just Monday night, Vanderburgh County sheriff's deputies say two 18-year-old women from Owensboro stole a pair of $5 flip flops, some underwear and a bottle of Paris Hilton perfume from a Gordman's store.

"Whether it be 15-cents or $500, it's still a felony," Wies said.

One of the women, Haley Pippin said she made an adolescent decision, that she says will never happen again.

In another incident, 27-year-old Bridgette Scroggins, with her two-year-old daughter with her is accused of stealing a pair of shoes.

Deputies said she spit at them when they tried to arrest her.

Evansville police say 24-year-old Travis Thacker stole a radar detector from Target and 46-year- old Cal Bigbee stole a package of sausage from a Buy-Low store.

"Almost all the time the surveillance catches them and many cases we're notified before they even leave the store and they're arrested on the spot," Wies said.

14 News contacted the store managers of Gordman's, Best Buy and Target.

Many confirmed a rise in shoplifting, and blame it on the bad economy.

None would talk about their security policies on camera.

A security officer for Target said they do have a policy in place to identify and deal with shoplifting cases, cases that are unfortunately on the rise.

"If you've ever been convicted of a felony, you'll have a hard time getting a job in certain areas," Wies said. "It really carries with you."

Detectives say they encourage stores to press charges, and that means if you're caught, expect to face jail time, even if you take $5 flip flops.

Violent weekend in northern Beaufort County
Sheriff's Office responds to 2 stabbings, 2 shooting incidents

* * *
•Evelyn Scroggins, a 70-year-old Mink Point woman, is charged with assault with intent to kill after investigators say she shot at her neighbor and nearby houses on Capwing Drive, then barricaded herself in her home.

A neighbor reported seeing Scroggins firing shots into the air and in the direction of a nearby home. The man said he was returning to his home after warning a neighbor of Scroggins' behavior when the woman spotted him and opened fire. He dropped to the ground and remained there until deputies arrived.

Scroggins refused to answer the door for deputies and instead stuck the gun out the door, according to the Sheriff's Office. She quickly pulled the gun back in and closed the door.

Deputies made several unsuccessful attempts to lure the woman out of her home by phone and using a public address system. When that didn't work, the Sheriff's Office's SWAT team surrounded the home. Scroggins then surrendered.

She is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center on $25,000 bond. Sunday's arrest was her only arrest in Beaufort County, according to the county's jail log.

No injuries or property damage was reported, and investigators say the motive for the shooting is still unknown.

Kentucky State Police say 81-year old Jeanette Scroggins was pulled from her Lawrenceburg home Sunday night after her granddaughter, 41-year old Cheryl Brogan set the fire in two places.
Arkansas police arrested Brogan last night on a traffic violation. They say she told police there that someone might want to check on her grandmother, claiming she'd set her home in Kentucky on fire.
Kentucky State Police had already launched an arson investigation and were looking for Brogan.
She will now be brought back to Kentucky to face an arson charge, but police say more charges are pending.
Police would not comment on a motive for the crime.
