Chardon shoplifting grandma guilty for 5th time

CHARDON, Ohio - An 87-year-old woman from Chardon can add another shoplifting conviction to her record.

June Kurtz, 87, was convicted of stealing $400 worth of clothes from Macy's and Dillard's inside Great Lakes Mall on April 5.

It wasn't the first or second time, rather the fifth, petty theft conviction for Kurtz. She was previously found guilty of stealing from stores in 1999, 2007, 2010 and 2011.

Kurtz's probation officer said she had seen a counselor in the past for her sticky fingers.

A judge continued bond for Kurtz and ordered she shop "with supervision only."

A sentencing date for Kurtz has not been set yet.
