Three family members accused of stealing from Macy's

WELLINGTON, FL (WFLX) - A 66-year-old woman was arrested Sunday afternoon, with two others, after, police say, they coordinated to steal clothing from a Macy's department store.

Afaf Aramouni, Micheline Aramouni and Raymond Aramouni, all of suburban West Palm Beach, were arrested on a charge of retail theft.

Monday morning, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Peter Evans ordered the three each be held in lieu of a $1,000 bond.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies responded to Macy's in the Wellington Green Mall around 7 p.m. Sunday.

Micheline Aramouni, 28, waited in the dressing room while Afaf Aramouni brought items to her to fill an empty shopping bag. Then Afaf Aramouni took the bag and handed it to 71-year-old Raymond Aramouni, who took it out of the store. The three repeated the ruse, before being apprehended by a Macy's loss prevention officer.

Some of the stolen items included a Lacoste T-shirt, Ralph Lauren T-shirts and a pair of leggings. The items totaled $436.38.

Raymond Aramouni was later found in a different department wearing a Geoffrey Beene belt, over his own, with the price tag still on it. He also had a gold Ralph Lauren chain in his pocket. Those items totaled $117.50.
