A woman and a man from Pittsburgh are accused of walking away with more than $2,700 worth of clothing and other items from stores at the Pittsburgh Mills mall in Frazer.

Frazer police are charging Sabrina Eisenberg, 45, and Bernie N. Heinlein, 50, both of various address in Pittsburgh, with multiple counts of felony retail theft .

The two are accused of taking almost $1,700 worth of items on June 28 from American Eagle and Seasons Greetings stores in the mall.

When police were notified, they checked mall surveillance video and identified a blue Chevrolet pickup the two were using.

Police spotted the same pickup in a mall parking lot on Aug. 29.

Officers say, on that day, they watched the pair put more than $1,000 worth of items into bags and walk out of stores including American Eagle without paying for anything.

Eisenberg and Heinlein were arrested as they tried to leave the mall.

An inventory of their vehicle also revealed hypodermic needles and other drug paraphernalia, according to police.

In May, Eisenberg was sentenced to 6 to 23 months in the Allegheny County Jail for retail theft. Records showed she served 54 days and was referred to a drug treatment program.

Eisenberg and Heinlein are also facing receiving stolen property and related charges at Robinson Township.
