Toledo Woman Admits To Attempted Theft At Local Store
October 3, 2017
An Ohio woman who allegedly worked with three other individuals to try to steal merchandise from a Green Oak Township store has entered a plea.
21-year-old Malaja Sharde Isom of Toledo, Ohio, pleaded guilty Monday to one count each of organized retail crime and malicious destruction of property. She also pleaded as a second habitual offender. The charges stem from the September 13th incident that occurred at the Victoria’s Secret store at the Green Oak Village Place mall. Store employees contacted police when they became suspicious of four women loading clothing, lingerie, and beauty items into shopping totes. Isom was seen removing security tags from some of the clothing items, according to authorities, which led to her arrest and subsequent charges.
Following her plea in 53rd District Court, Isom was bound over for sentencing, which is set for November 9th. She is being held on a $25,000 cash/surety bond and remains lodged in the Livingston County Jail. Charges have not yet been authorized against the other suspects involved in the attempted theft, as additional investigation continues. They are all said to be residents of Toledo as well. (DK)
