Do you know where 40-year-old Tabatha Worlds is? She is a well-known retail thief in Lakeland.  We have a warrant for her arrest after she has been involved in at least 7 thefts in Lakeland and Mulberry. She is being charged with grand theft of $300-5,000, and 6 counts of felony petit theft! She doesn’t work alone either, we have attached a picture of an unknown male who distracts the store employees while she fills her bag with unpaid merchandise.


This wouldn’t be her first time visiting the Polk County Jail – her criminal history includes the following charges: Possession of Cocaine, Paraphernalia, Obstruction, Resisting arrest, Larceny, Felony Petit Theft, Grand Theft, Robbery, Resist Merchant During Property Recovery, Keep Vehicle or Structure for Drug Use, Battery, Aggravated Battery, and Assault.
