Jefferson City man's latest shoplifting brings felony charge

Jefferson City man's latest shoplifting brings felony charge

May 23rd, 2019 by News Tribune in Local News

Officials with Orscheln Farm and Home, 2304 Missouri Blvd., accuse Marshall Angelo Williams of stealing an $80 raincoat and a hat.

Cole County prosecutors on Wednesday charged Williams with a Class E felony in the case, because he has at least three previous stealing convictions.

If convicted, Marshall's possible punishment could include up to four years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.

In a probable cause statement, Jefferson City police said Williams, 34, of 1133 E. Dunklin St., went into the Orscheln store May 3 and put on a Carhartt brand rain coat — then concealed that coat under his own jacket.

Police said Williams then took a hat and left the store, but was stopped outside by store officials who recognized the hat.

Williams gave the hat back to the store employees.

The statement said store officials didn't realize the coat had been stolen until they reviewed security video.

The charging paperwork reported Williams was convicted last June 7 of four different stealing cases that occurred April 14, March 2 and Feb. 15, 2018, and Sept. 18, 2017.
