  • Police arrested Katina Scott and Matthew Donaho Tuesday.
  • The couple is accused of more than 30 thefts.
  • Police say they mainly stole from stores in the area near the Woodland Hills Mall.

Tulsa police arrested two people Tuesday accused of shoplifting more than $18,000 in merchandise during dozens of shoplifting incidents over the past year.

Investigators say Katina Scott and Matthew Donaho targeted multiple retailers in south Tulsa. The duo reportedly stole from a TJ Maxx at least four times over the summer.

Officers believe one of the suspects would act as a look-out, while the other stole from the store. In many cases, they believe the couple simply walked out of stores without paying.

In a Toys R Us theft, police say the couple filled two carts with toys and walked right past the register on their way out the door.

They say they pulled over Scott in a traffic stop Tuesday and found she had outstanding warrants. Police reportedly searched her home, and Donaho showed up driving the same truck seen in the shoplifting cases.

Police say the couple could be behind more than 30 cases, mainly in the area surrounding the Woodland Hills Mall.

Court documents say the couple would steal anywhere from five dollars in merchandise to more $2,000 in merchandise.
