A list titled “Things daddy needs” was found in a woman’s Oldsmobile along with four pricey jackets stolen from Nordstrom, according to Pierce County prosecutors.

Sandy Dillon, 20, has been charged with second-degree organized retail theft and second-degree theft. She pleaded not guilty to the charges at her arraignment Thursday. Bail was set at $10,000.

According to court documents:

Dillon walked out of the store in the Tacoma Mall with two black leather 7 Diamonds jackets in front of a police officer, who yelled that she was under arrest. Dillon dropped the jackets and ran.

Employees said the two jackets were worth $950. They then reviewed surveillance footage and saw Dillon steal four white Helly-Hansen jackets and walk to a 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass.

Police found the car in the parking lot and impounded it. When they searched the Oldsmobile, they found the four stolen jackets, valued at $1,120; clippers used to cut off security tags; and pay stubs for Dillon. Inside her purse was the list of “Things daddy needs.”

She is also accused of trying to steal denim jeans from the store.
