Four Miami women who traveled north to steal hundreds of dollars in liquor from Martin County businesses, learned that the cost of Ciroc Apple and Peach Vodka and Hennessy Cognac is much higher when you’re hit with a $40,000 bond on the back end of the transaction.
23-year old Kimberly Williams, 21-year old Tameisha Mobley, 22-year old Jameisha Fulton, and 19-year old Vallone St. Louis were arrested after the vehicle they were traveling in was spotted by deputies who believed it matched the description of the car involved in multiple liquor thefts at Palm City retail stores.
Employees at Walgreens and Publix on Martin Downs Boulevard were able to provide descriptions of the suspects, as well as a possible get-a-way vehicle.
Deputies on the 100-Shift, along with MCSO Air-2, kept an eye out for the car, spotting it near another retail store on Kanner Highway.
After the traffic stop, deputies located the alcohol inside the car.
The women, all from the Miami/Broward area, repeatedly offered to pay for the stolen goods in exchange for their release.
Deputies explained how crime and arrests work in our area and said the time to pay for the goods, is not after you steal them.
All four women were charged with grand theft.
Their bonds are $40,000.
Kimberly Williams was also charged with driving without a license. Her bond is $45,000.
Unfortunately for Martin County, this type of crime coming in from out of county is a prime contributor to the slight uptick in our overall crime rate.
