(Aurora, Ind.) – An Erlanger women went shopping for computers multiple times at the Walmart store in Aurora, but she never paid, police say.
According to an affidavit filed in Dearborn Superior Court I on June 4, Crystalle Morgan, 28, entered the box store April 18 and selected a HP Envy Touch computer valued at $798. With the high-priced item in a cart, she proceeded to the clothing department where she allegedly removed a security device from the computer box. Soon after, police say, she exited the store through a side door without paying.
An inventory audit at the store discovered that a total of three HP computers were missing. Upon further review of security footage store officials found Morgan appeared to have stole computers on two separate occasions in mid-April.
Walmart’s loss prevention team was able to identify Morgan as the suspect after sending pictures to other local stores where she had also stolen merchandise.
In Dearborn County, Morgan was brought to Dearborn County on Monday after being held in Warren County, Ohio on theft charges there. She is also facing charges of theft and attempting to deprive an owner of property in Kenton County, Kentucky.
