The camera operator said due to the woman making a clear attempt of theft of merchandise by concealment and being caught on their camera, that they wished to have her trespassed. The woman was identified by police and management confirmed a desire to trespass her. The woman signed a trespass form with Dillard's, acknowledging she is hereby banned and/or trespassed from all Dillard's locations in the United States of America. Dillard's denied a shoplifting report, so the incident was documented as a miscellaneous for trespass warning.
