A 19-year-old woman had to answer to police officers after having a close shave at the Macey's grocery store, 293 E. 1300 South, Friday afternoon.

According to police spokesman Gerald Nielsen, the woman was observed opening a pack of razors. "She took one out and discarded the rest. She then went to the liquid soap section, lathered and shaved her armpits. She then discarded the used razor and remaining items behind some merchandise and walked out of the store."She was apprehended outside the store, arrested and booked on suspicion of retail theft.

"A store employee had apparently observed the entire incident and apprehended her," Nielsen said. Total loss to the store: $1.
