Gloucester Township police say the attempted heist was at a ShopRite supermarket Wednesday afternoon and was broken up by the store's security crew.

Erica Williams and Demetrius Williams of Sewell were both charged with shoplifting.

The 23-year-old woman is being held at the Camden County Jail because she was also wanted for failing to appear in court. The 27-year-old man was released. A phone number of him could not be located.
