ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – St. Louis County prosecutors have charged a 19-year-old believed to be responsible for a spate of clothing store ‘grab and go’ thefts, one of which ended with an 87-year-old nun being knocked to the ground during an escape.
Jordan Holmes of St. Louis was charged Wednesday with four counts of stealing over $500.
The thefts occurred October 15, October 21, and October 23 at Hibbett Sports, J.C. Penney, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Victoria’s Secret, respectively.
Holmes’ suspected accomplice, 21-year-old Cherrish Morris, was taken into custody in early November and charged with four counts of stealing. She remains jailed on $10,000 cash-only bond.
According to prosecutors, Holmes and Morris stole approximately $2,315 worth of Nike Dryfit clothing by grabbing the merchandise and running out of the store. Police say the two stole the items from Hibbitt Sports in the South County Mall on October 15.
On October 21, they allegedly took $2,970 worth of North Face jackets from a nearby Dick’s Sporting Goods. Surveillance video shows the thieves running out of the store with the merchandise. They knocked over an 87-year-old nun on the way out of the store.
