Suspect Linked to Theft From Former Mayor's Wife

A suspect arrested after a scuffle with police last week is now facing new charges.

Shantelle Eason was taken into custody last Wednesday at the Target store near 72nd and Dodge. An off-duty police officer recognized her. She reportedly released pepper spray at the officer and store security as they tried to take her into custody.

On Monday, Douglas County deputies said Eason is suspected of purchasing $5,500 in gift cards at the same store back in August. Those gift cards were purchased with a credit card that had been stolen from former Mayor P.J. Morgan's wife just hours earlier.
