Ms. Turner was arrested for Retail Theft -4 counts.
Terry G. Turner, age 30, Sun Prairie
Mr. Turner was arrested for Party to a Crime of Retail Theft - 3 counts.
A Sun Prairie husband and wife were arrested Monday for allegedly stealing 3 televisions from 2 Target stores on 3 occasions.
The MPD was notified by Target loss prevention officers that the suspects were in the Lien Rd. store Monday afternoon shop lifting a third 22" Samsung LED television. Surveillance video shows the woman placing the television on a cart, covering the TV with a coat, and placing a small child on top of the coat.
The loss prevention officer said similar ploys were used by the couple when they took the same model of television from the Junction Rd. Target store on January 4th and on January 5th.
When she was arrested Monday, the female suspect had a large green clipper in her purse, which the arresting officer said was likely used to cut anti-theft devices off of the televisions. Each retails for $250.
The woman was also in possession of a pawn shop sales slip.
