Gresham, Oregon – A 39 year old woman has been arrested on more than 40 counts of theft after a crime spree at Portland area Safeway stores. Gresham police say Tawni Marie Hudson would steal small, expensive goods that were easy to conceal and then sell them on craigslist or eBay.
Gresham police worked with Safeway investigators during a three month investigation. When she was arrested, Hudson had a bunch of stolen items with her, ranging from mineral supplements and Rogaine to Frontline topical flea and tick prevention for pets.
She had an unrelated arrest warrant from Washington county for a probation violation in connection with a drug case and a warrant from Clackamas County for theft. She’s been booked into the Multnomah County Jail.
