A 32-year-old Milwaukee woman is accused of stealing $800 in electronics from Best Buy in Fox Point.
Antee Ramona Consuela Johnson was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Thursday with one count of felony retail theft. If convicted, she faces up to 1½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Wednesday, Fox Point police officers were called to the store after employees saw Johnson get out of an idling car in the parking lot and enter the store, then grab some items from off the shelves and walk around. Johnson was suspected in several other shoplifting incidents from the store in recent weeks and she was performing the same routine as other times.
The officer saw her leave with a Kindle Fire tablet and Laptop Essentials Bundle valued at $808. The officer tried to stop Johnson, but she began to run, then tried to discard the items before being taken into custody.
Johnson was turned over to the JUSTICE 2000 program for monitoring while awaiting trial.
