A woman shoplifted more than $300 in liquor from the north end QFC Friday night, according to Mercer Island Police.
According to the store manager, the store's video captured the woman taking the alcohol just before 10:30 p.m., but no one witnessed it until the manager looked at the video after the woman left the store.
