Brookville Police Nab Woman Accused of Stealing from Main Street Stores

Police car lightsBROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – A Brookville woman is facing charges after she allegedly took items from two Main Street stores.

According to a criminal complaint, police received a call from a Main Street, Brookville business on September 19 in which it was reported a woman matching a specific description had allegedly stolen merchandise from the store, but store employees confronted her and recovered the property.

Police spoke to store personnel at a second nearby Main Street store, who said a woman matching that description, later identified as Kristin Marie Munn, 32, of Brookville, was in their store and had left while handing a price tag to an employee and saying “someone must have stolen something,” the complaint states.

Police reviewed surveillance video and saw the woman matching the previous description, later identified as Munn, enter the store, sample some lotion, pick up a small container of lotion and walk to the back of the store, then come into the camera’s view empty-handed. “The woman can be seen kneeling down with her purse in front of her in the electronics section of the store, reach up, pull an object down and place it into her purse,” the complaint states.

The woman continued into the jewelry section and can allegedly be seen looking and holding objects but cannot be seen taking them before handing a tag to the clerk and leaving the store, the complaint continues.

Police obtained a copy of the security footage and were “able to observe the suspect take and place into her purse two different items, and it is suspected a third time,” the complaint states.

Police spoke with Munn, who at first said she was unable to come into the station until the following Monday. When police informed her they planned to speak with an officer who allegedly arrested her before for retail theft in order to identify her, Munn allegedly said, “Yes, I was there” and “Yes, I took the lotion,” then admitted she had stolen from the other store as well, but denied taking anything else from the first store other than the lotion, according to the complaint.

According to online court documents, Munn faces the following charges:

  • Retail theft by taking merchandise – Misdemeanor 2 (two counts)
  • Receiving stolen property – Misdemeanor 2 (two counts)

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on December 3 before District Judge Gregory Bazylak.
