Two people have been arrested after Nelson Police received a call on Tuesday regarding a shoplifter that was in custody at the Wal-Mart.

Police were told that the accomplice had fled the scene. Officers took the female into custody and searched for her male companion.  He was found nearby with a vehicle full of apparent stolen goods.

He was also arrested and both were lodged into cells at the Nelson Police Department.

As the investigation unfolded it was discovered that a number of local businesses had apparently been victimized by these two. The investigation is ongoing.

Paddy Doherty and Caron Renee are being held in custody for a court appearance in Nelson on Monday June 30.

They will answer to charges of theft, possession of stolen property, escaping lawful custody and breaching a probation order.
