Racine police say a Racine teenager participated in a burglary Monday night, helping a male accomplice steal a television and at least one other item from a home in the 3500 Victory Avenue.
Our friends at Racine Uncovered are reporting that Tabitha Scruggs, 17, and a male partner broke into a home around 10:30 p.m. Monday by breaking a window. They were seen by witnesses first carrying out a large television and then another item shaped like a box.
Police say they were provided a description of the vehicle the pair were in, and officers initiated a traffic stop after they spotted the car heading south on Lathrop Avenue. Scruggs was identified by an officer who reported previous contacts with her, and the male with her was identified as Geovanni Perez-Peralta.
Scruggs remains in the Racine County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond. She will next be in court on Jan. 9.
