Three Pulaski County residents were charged in connection with a shoplifting incident at Paul’s Discount store this weekend.

Early Saturday afternoon, Jessica R. Jones, 20, of Somerset, and Charli L. Jones, 19, Science Hill, stole overalls and boots from Paul’s Discount, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department said.

The pair left the store in a gray vehicle, but deputies were unable to locate them immediately following the incident.

About two hours later, they returned to Paul’s Discount — where they were detained until deputies were able to arrive.

Jessica Jones and Charlie Jones were arrested at the scene and charged with theft by unlawful taking.

Jimmy D. Whitson, 20, of Ferguson, was also arrested at the scene and was charged with conspiracy to theft by unlawful taking.

All three were lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center.
