A shoplifter who grappled with a security guard at a Santa Clarita clothing store Wednesday got away with about $50 worth of merchandise, sheriff’s officials said.

The woman got into a physical altercation with the guard after she was confronted by security personnel at the T.J.Maxx store in the 19000 block of Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials said.

The guard was not injured. The woman ran from the store and fled before deputies arrived with about $50 in merchandise, officials said.

Why did the deputies show up with merchandise?

Now thats funny.....did you expect anyone at the Signal to proofread or understand their own writing ? I really do wonder if they ever read the story before it goes to print and ask themselves "boy does that sound odd"

Diagramming an odd sounding sentence sometimes helps.

BBennetts, you crack me up. Of course, in commenting on grammar, you're opening yourself up to comments telling you to "grow up", etc. Been there.

Funny, made my morning.

Maybe after hearing that the grappling shoplifter got away with $50 in merchandise, the deputies were kind enough to arrive with the same dollar value to replace it?
