Shoplifting suspects were wanted elsewhere

Feb. 22, 2010

Two Milwaukee women, who were wanted on eight warrants between them, were arrested for retail theft at Boston Store at Mayfair Mall.

According to Wauwatosa police:

A 20-year-old woman was seen concealing items valued at $135 in a bag, then taking them to the cashier to return for store credit on Feb. 13. She used the credit to buy items and gave the remaining balance to her 22-year-old friend. A security guard stopped the woman before the friend's transaction was done.

The younger woman was found to be on probation and staying away from Boston Store was one of the conditions.

The older woman was also arrested for obstruction because she gave an alias to officers so they wouldn't find her bail-jumping and retail theft warrants from numerous other communities

During a search of the suspects' belongings, officers recovered many more store credit gift cards.

They were sent to Greendale Police Department for retail theft warrant in that community, then to Milwaukee County Jail.
