Broward Sheriff’s Office North Lauderdale detectives arrested the duo wanted for stealing more than $1,000 worth of perfumes from a Walgreens pharmacy.
After surveillance video was released on October 26 of the two thieves sneaking behind the perfume counter at the North Lauderdale pharmacy, BSO investigators received a Crime Stoppers tip identifying the pair.

Detectives caught up with Shaunta Major, 28, and Desmand Lyles, 19, around 10 this morning (Nov. 17) after they exited an apartment in North Lauderdale and got into a white rental van, which was loaded with merchandise presumed to have been stolen.

Major and Lyles are facing retail theft charges. Major has a lengthy criminal history in Broward County and was out on bond after being arrested on similar charges in Palm Beach County.

Anyone with information about their crimes is asked to contact BSO Detective Lisa Sokol at 954-722-5800. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
