An employee at a Shell station in Jacksonville, Florida caught a woman shoplifting about $11 worth of candy bars back in March.  And his plan to keep her until the cops arrived was to lock her inside the store.

So . . . she promptly proceeded to TRASH the place.

He let her go at it for almost 10 minutes before he finally realized it wasn't worth it and let her out.  And she ran away before the cops got there.

So why is this just coming out now?  Apparently this woman is a MASTER CRIMINAL who the cops still haven't identified, even though there's very clear surveillance footage of her.

So they just released the video to see if anyone can help identify her.  They're even offering a $3,000 reward.
