A 23-year-old Columbia Station woman and a 20-year-old Lakewood man were arrested for receiving stolen property and possession of criminal tools after a July 23 theft of two 19-inch TV sets from a Center Ridge Road store. The suspects fled the scene, but not before a store employee got the license plate number off their vehicle.
