Salon Customer Arrested for Stealing $20K

Written by Jeremy Scott on December 20, 2013

HAPPY VALLEY — A thief stuffed $20,000 in cash under the seat of her car and waited for police after ripping off an employee at the Number One Nail Salon on 82nd Avenue near King Road.

The victim had the large amount of cash in her purse because she was going to buy an engagement ring after work.  When she realized it was gone, she got suspicious of a woman who was sitting right next to her purse that was on a chair.

The victim went into the parking lot and confronted her.  Deputies found the stash and Theresa Costello, 37 of Milwaukie, admitted to stealing.

Costello was wanted for theft in Washington too.  Now she faces aggravated theft charges in Clackamas County.
