Three women were arrested by the Racine Police Department Wednesday after stealing over $1,000 worth of merchandise from Hobby Lobby.

Two of the women had been charged within the last few months of 2017 for retail theft in Waukesha and Milwaukee respectively.

Amber S. Ellis, 24, Tamyra S. Ellis, 41, and Octaviona Johnson, 24, walked into the Hobby Lobby at 2406 S. Green bay Road, loaded two carts with merchandise and proceeded to walk out of the store. Once in the parking lot, an employee confronted them before they left, but was shoved by one of them and failed to stop them.

All three are charged with felony retail theft. And Amber Ellis and Johnson are each charged with bail jumping.
