WOODRUFF, SC (WYFF) - An Upstate woman and her son are accused of using two-way radios to shoplift from a grocery store.

Woodruff police said they were called to the BI-LO on South Main Street on Saturday about a shoplifter.

The store manager told police he saw a man leaving the store on an electronic cart. The manager said he stopped the man and asked if he was going to pay for the items in the cart and the man said he was going to his car.

Police said they recognized the man, Bradley Dunaway, because they had arrested him for shoplifting before.

Police said Dunaway told them he and his mother, Betty, used two-way radios to talk about what items to steal.

According to an incident report, Dunaway had 10 items totaling almost $50.

When officers told the Dunaways they were under arrest, the report said Betty began to fight with an officer and then spit on him.

Betty and Bradley Dunaway are both charged with shoplifting.
