VAN NUYS — Prosecutors filed misdemeanor charges Monday accusing two Target stores in the San Fernando Valley of overcharging customers.
Dayton Hudson Corp., which operates the stores in Woodland Hills and Canoga Park, and the assistant manager at each store were named in the complaint filed in Van Nuys Municipal Court.
The charges were filed after inspectors of the Los Angeles County Department of Weights and Measures made surprise inspections Oct. 19 and found checkout scanners allegedly overcharging on several items, according to Deputy City Atty. Don Cocek.
In the Canoga Park store, Target charged $12.99 for a Stanley 25-foot tape measure that was supposed to be marked down to $9.99, the prosecutor said.
