Rhonda Lynn Diehl
Rhonda Lynn Diehl, 44, of Columbia was charged with three counts of retail theft after several recent incidents at Musser's Market in Columbia.
On Monday, July 25, 2016, Diehl took items from the store and went out through a cashier lane that was not opened. Police identified her through surveillance footage. On Wednesday, July 27, police were called back to Musser's for another retail theft involving the same person. Diehl fled from the store by going out the entrance as someone entered the store prior to police arrival. On July 28, Diehl had sixteen items in her purse and attempted to apply for a job. A source tells the Spy that store personnel set up a fake job interview to detain her until police arrived.
Diehl was picked up by police that day in the store and was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Miles Bixler.
