A 51-year-old Milwaukee man is facing hefty fines and prison time for trying to boost some jewelry from Boston Store at Bayshore Town Center.
Kevin Frederick Wallace was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Wednesday with one count of retail theft. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.
A security guard at Boston Store saw Wallace pick up several pieces of jewelry, take the tags off and place in his pocket, according to the criminal complaint. Wallace then left the store, but was stopped and Glendale police officers were called to the scene.
Wallace is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail on a $250 signature bond while awaiting trial.
