BRENTWOOD, Mo. (AP) — Nordstrom Rack has apologized to three Black shoppers who say they were falsely accused of stealing from a suburban St. Louis store.
Police were called to a Brentwood store Thursday while 19-year-old college student Mekhi Lee and high school seniors Eric Rogers and Dirone Taylor were shopping for prom clothes.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the three left the store and police pulled into the parking lot. Officers told them that police had gotten a call about three Black men shoplifting. Lee and the others showed police the items they had bought and a store receipt, and they were allowed to leave.
