(CBS 8) - A shoplifter who stole $300,000 worth of merchandise from Ross stores across the county is now paying the price. 46-year-old Maria Delaluz Oros was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison.
She is one of five women who pleaded guilty in February in connection with the shoplifting ring.
Police say the crew stole the merchandise over a two-year period. They then sold the stolen goods at the Oceanside Swap Meet and out of their home.
Deputy District Attorney, Anna Winn, says, "They had numerous items from Ross hanging on the walls and purses on display and that sort of thing so that neighbors could come to their house and shop and buy brand new Ross merchandise which had been stolen."
The women were arrested at the Ross store in Encinitas in January.
