A man has now been charged with shoplifting from a Target store in Virginia, where the security guard who called the cops on him says he was fired for doing so.
The Washington Post reports, however, that a Target spokeswoman still won’t talk about the case of Dallas Northington, the Target employee who was fired:
Target spokeswoman, Molly Snyder, said Monday that “out of respect for those involved, we aren’t going to get into the specifics of this incident. Any crime committed at Target is a crime against our guests, our team members and our shareholders. We take that very seriously. . . . As this is an active investigation, we don’t have additional details at this time.”
