ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Two suspected serial shoplifters are caught in a stolen car Wednesday afternoon.

39-year-old Coretta Bracey and 34-year-old Jonnie Jackson are in the Dougherty County Jail charged with theft by taking and shoplifting. Police say they stole speakers, an adaptor, and an alarm clock from the Rite Aid on North Slappey Boulevard. They were gone when cops arrived, but police tracked them to the Rite Aid on Dawson Road.

"They had gotten initial information regarding a tag and a description of the car, so that's what really helped them,” said Phyllis Banks, APD Media Manager. “They knew immediately once they got the description of the car today that hey this might be the same individuals that have been committing these other shopliftings in the area."

Bracey's 2-year-old son was in the car. He was treated for dehydration and is in state custody. Investigators expect to file more charges against the two for a string of shoplifting cases at Rite Aids and Dollar Generals since July 20th. They also have warrants in other counties.
