SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Sioux Falls Police are investigating a shoplifting turned robbery at Ross Dress for Less.
At around 9 p.m. Thursday, two women and a man went into the store. Police say they picked up several items before trying to leave without paying.
When an employee stopped the group, one of the people pulled out a weapon.
“Once the man pulled out the gun the employee basically backed away and let them go out the door, which is something we encourage people to do,” Officer Sam Clemens said.
