Clothing in the Mason City Goodwill store

MASON CITY – A Clear Lake woman was chased out of Goodwill after tossing away the used clothing she tried to steal, then ran to Target to try her luck at absconding with DVDs.

The incident took place Wednesday evening, December 7. Mollie Kathleen McDermott, age 31, was arrested at Target at 4:46 PM for allegedly concealing $178.00 worth of DVDs inside her purse with the intent to steal.

Police say that MacDormott was at Goodwill earlier that day and was chased out by employees. At 3:11 PM that same afternoon, MacDormott is accused of allegedly concealing $42.00 worth of clothes inside her purse inside Goodwill in Mason City with the intent to steal clothing.

“Employees confronted her and she dumped the clothes but took off before police arrived,” NIT was told. Police soon located her at Target when the next theft was reported.

Wal-Mart

A few days prior, MacDormott was at Walmart in Mason City planning another caper and apparently used her speed and elusiveness to flee the scene after dumping merchandise.

Police charged her with fifth-degree theft for a reported shoplifting attempt at Walmart on December 2, 2016 at 6:06 PM. MacDormott allegedly concealed $93.00 worth of clothing inside her purse and left the store without paying for those items. MacDormott was confronted by employees past last point of sale.

“MacDormott allegedly got upset, emptied the contents of her purse for the employee to recover the clothing but fled before police arrived,” according to information relayed to NIT.

In summary, MacDormott was charged with three counts of fourth-degree theft (for the 3 different shoplifting events). Some suspected drug paraphernalia was also located on MacDormott at time of arrest and she was charged for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia as well.

    Quit assuming and trying to start rumors. I hate reading the comments from you idiots, I feel my IQ get lower with each one. Glad I don’t live in Mason City, I don’t have to claim any of you as neighbors.

      Hey dumb ass! It’s called the 1rst amendment. Freedom of speech! We are not starting rumor as well because everyone knows she is stupid cracked out crackhead thief! If she comes into contact with anything not bolted down, she will steal it. If its burn able, she will smoke it. When she is broke and if you got $30, she will suck it. She is a cracked out hoe and she needs help. Stop defending her and acting like your too good to live in Mason City. Mason City is glad your gone Biootch! I’m sure whatever town you moved to if you eve. Moved, is ready for your stupid ass to leave. Please don’t come back to Mason, and take Mollie with you before she scores some more Mollies!
