‘Baltimore-Area Women’

4 Baltimore-area women
charged with stealing thousands of dollars
of merchandise in Rehoboth Beach

As a descriptor, “Baltimore-area women” is perhaps a suitable synonym for Democratic voters, but let’s learn more:

Four Baltimore-area women have been charged with stealing thousands of dollars of merchandise from Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach.
Delaware State Police said they arrested Antonia Risby, 26, of Baltimore; Adaja Cozart, 24, of Middle River; Jasmin Burgess, 21, of Gwynn Oak; and Cemone Massenberg, 25, of Baltimore.
Police pulled over the black Infiniti sedan they were in, at about 2:41 p.m. March 5, in the parking lot of Bayside Outlets. The sedan’s rear license plate was covered with paper.
The suspects were found to have shoplifting tools, and numerous empty shopping bags from various stores were found in the car.

From another account of the same incident:

Investigators say Risby is connected with three other shoplifting incidents at Gap Outlet Store, Victoria Secrets Outlet Store, and Under Armour Factory Store in the Tanger Outlets. Investigators say she stole more than $11,000 worth of merchandise in those cases.
All four women face several felony-level shoplifting charges, including shoplifting over $1,500 and possession of shoplifting tools.

If your shoplifting spree reaches “felony-level,” you might be a Baltimore-area woman. Notice that I’ve quoted two different stories about the same case. That’s because, after seeing one story and wishing to find more details, I decided to Google “Baltimore women shoplifting” and oh, my goodness! It’s the mother lode of crime news!

Four women allegedly stole
$5,600 worth of merchandise
from DSW, Old Navy in Abingdon

Four women from Baltimore have been charged in Harford County with stealing more than $5,600 worth of merchandise from DSW and Old Navy stores in Abingdon.
Sonnova Winchester, 41, Lattie Dower, 48, Shanay Jackson, 27, and Sade Johnson, 26, and are each charged with two counts of theft from $1,500 to less than $25,000 after they were allegedly caught putting merchandise into bags and walking out of the stores without paying for them, according to charging documents.
Winchester has been charged with similar thefts in the last few months: last week in Anne Arundel County and in June in Harford County.
Harford County Sheriff’s deputies were called to DSW shoe store in the Constant Friendship shopping center Tuesday afternoon by store employees, who said they had video of four people putting items in their DSW bags as they tried on various pairs of shoes. . . .
As the deputy was looking at the video, a separate call was dispatched for a theft involving four women at the Old Navy store across the street, in the Boulevard of Box Hill shopping center, according to charging documents. The description of those women matched those in the DSW theft.


5 Baltimore women charged
with stealing over $2.7K
from Lancaster Kohl’s, Bon-Ton

Police charged five Baltimore women with conspiring to steal over $2,700 worth of collective merchandise from two clothing stores at a Lancaster mall.
Whitney Muse, 23, Trashell Davis, 18, Kyra Miller, 24, Tyjae Smith, 18, and Lakyah Green, 24, were each arraigned Tuesday on two counts of retail theft, two counts of criminal conspiracy and a single count of possessing an instrument of a crime.
Police responded to Park City Center for a report of retail theft in progress at 6:48 p.m. Monday, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
At least one of the women was seen taking merchandise from Kohl’s, concealing one or more items in a bag from H&M clothing store and leaving the store without paying, police said.
Police located one of the suspects during a vehicle stop about an hour later and found three H&M bags filled with clothing.
Most of the items still had anti-theft devices attached, police said.
An investigation determined $1,654.98 worth of merchandise was stolen from Kohl’s and $1,115.88 worth of items was taken from Bon-Ton at Park City Center.
All five women were placed in Lancaster County Prison: Miller, Davis and Smith on $50,000 bail, and Muse and Green on $40,000 bail, according to court records.

It would probably be unfair to stereotype the female population of an entire city based on a handful of incidents. On the other hand, many would be tempted to say of Baltimore what Obi Wan Kenobi said of Mos Eisley: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”
