Two Case High School teachers’ credit cards were stolen in March and used at Regency Mall, police say.
Police identified two suspects. One, Marielle Lewis, 17, was charged in April. The second, Sheila Escalante, 17, of Racine was charged this week.
Both are charged with identity theft, theft and forgery in the incident.
According to court records, the teachers said two girls came into their office, and one of them asked for help with physics. The teachers discovered their property missing at lunch time, and said Lewis was one of the two girls who had come into the office.
Police investigated the fraudulent use of the cards, at Brow Arts and Ivy Nails, both in Regency Mall, 5742 Durand Ave., and using video and witness statements developed two suspects. The second suspect has not been charged, and is not being named.
Escalante is due to make her initial appearance next month on the charges.
