She was arrested after Brentwood Borough Council’s CCTV operators were alerted by staff in the Baytree Centre on December 19.

The suspect was apprehended by police community support officers in High Street just minutes after the operators were notified.

The haul included items such as alcohol, trainers and clothes.

Cllr Chris Hossack, vice-chairman for the community services committee, said: “This was a great result and I am glad to see our CCTV is protecting our retailers from those who are trying to steal.

“The message is clear - if you come to Brentwood to steal you will get caught.”

Police, centre staff and the operators communicated through a Town Link radio network, which is monitored by the council.

More than 40 shops in Brentwood have access to it.
