Crystal J. Price, 29, and Georgina A. Stone, 19, are charged with felony retail theft as party to the crime, for an October 2013 theft at Pick ‘n Save, 2820 S. Green Bay Road, Mount Pleasant. If convicted, each could spend up to 18 months in prison, plus time on supervised release.
Price has made her first appearance on the charges; a warrant is out for Stone’s arrest.
The store called police after someone stole 27 canisters of Gerber baby formula, worth $485.73, plus liquor, soda, chips, cereal and diapers. Together, the stolen merchandise was worth $568.91. The items stolen and the way they were taken were similar to another Mount Pleasant theft, according to the criminal complaint filed against Price.
While investigating the thefts, Stone and Price were implicated in this theft. One of the sources told police the stolen formula was being sold in a corner store on Racine Street.
