MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Myrtle Beach Police have arrested two accused shoplifters after a loss prevention officer said he saw them steal Rogaine and other items from Walmart Saturday.

According to a police report, officers responded to the Walmart located at 541 Seaboard St. around noon in reference to a shoplifting.

When they arrived, they met with the loss prevention officer who said he watched as the two suspects, identified as 25-year-old Jeffrey Harley Douglas and 19-year-old Samantha Lynn Hart, both of Myrtle Beach, conceal merchandise inside Hart's purse.

Additionally, he said he saw Douglas conceal items underneath the front of his shirt after cutting packages with a knife.

Among the items reportedly shoplifted were $46 worth of men's Rogaine, $43 worth of women's Rogaine, four packs of drill bits, $37 worth of curl shampoo and conditioner, Nexxus shampoo and a prepaid phone. The total was valued at $410.

The complainant said he approached the pair and escorted them to the loss prevention room. According to the report, both Hart and Douglas admitted to the officers they shoplifted and both were arrested.

During a search, officers found a black knife inside Douglas' front right pocket.

They have been charged with shoplifting under $2,000.
