2 of 5 arrested in Marketplace thefts

Local

Waco police say two out of five suspects sought in a series of thefts from Central Texas Marketplace stores have been arrested and that officers have warrants and are on the trail of the others.

Police say the investigation started on April 12 when they got calls that several stores in the Marketplace had been hit.

Old Navy, The Gap, Rackroom Shoes, Carters and Rue 21 all reported a group of women coming in and taking various amounts of clothes, shoes and other items.

Police were given a vehicle description and found the car in South Waco.

A large amount of clothing and shoes were recovered, with officers getting warrants for five people.

Because of the number working together on the enterprise,  all will be facing engaging in organized crime in addition to any other charges.

In the first arrests, 18-year-old Shellra Darmarion Norwood was booked into the McLennan County Jail on charges of engaging in organized crime, four counts of theft, and failure to ID.

She had already been free on bond and was held on the previous charges of criminal trespass and two counts of robbery.

The other suspect arrested was 21-year-old Alexis Lilrose Johnson held on charges of engaging in organized crime, three counts of theft including with two prior convictions, and was also out on bond for two robbery charges at the time of her arrest.
