Theft Suspect Faces New Charge

We have more new details in *breaking news* we reported on last Wednesday. Police called to "help an officer" at the Target , at 72nd and Dodge.

Officers placing a woman into the back of one of the cruisers.
She resisted officers -- and sprayed them with mace inside the store -- as she was taken into custody. 44-year-old Shantelle Eason faces a list of charges -- including "assault on an officer", "criminal impersonation", and "possession of a financial transaction device". Police reports indicate she bought *six-thousand* dollars in gift cards.

Now WOWT6 News has learned Eason has been booked by Douglas County Sheriff’s investigators in connection with the theft of a credit card belonging to the wife of a Douglas County Commissioner.

Last August PJ Morgan’s wife Annie reported her wallet stolen from her purse at a downtown wine establishment. At that time someone used the Morgan’s credit card to purchase $5,500 worth of gift cards also at a Target store.

Comparing security camera video and other evidence, deputies arrested Eason while in Douglas county jail. Investigators are still looking for a male accomplice.
