A Des Moines woman was arrested Tuesday after her employer reported the alleged theft of almost $20,000 in merchandise and store credit from a Jordan Creek boutique.
Amy Rose Wood, 22, of 2806 Brattleboro Ave., Des Moines, was charged with first-degree theft in connection with alleged incidents occurring at Torrid, a women’s clothing store at at 6925 Mills Civic Parkway, #140, in West Des Moines.
According to court records, managers at the store claimed “they had an employee falsely apply in-store credit to her own account without permission to do so as well as stole store merchandise.”
The store claimed a loss totaling $19,642 and said that “the thefts have been occurring since December 2018.”
Wood is held at the Dallas County Jail on a $10,000 cash or surety bond. She is scheduled for arraignment Nov. 15 in Dallas County District Court.
Wood was convicted of fourth-degree theft in January 2019 in Polk County District Court.
