2 suspects accused of Walgreens grand theft spree with child in tow
Tuesday, Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man and woman accused of stealing from a Walgreens in North Naples while they had a 2-year-old child with them. Investigators say the two suspects had been on a crime spree, stealing almost $3,000 from a number of Walgreens locations in the state.
According to the CCSO Facebook post, Collier County deputies arrested Terrelle Eugene Darling, 26, of Miami Gardens and Alisia Longstreet, 24, of Fort Lauderdale after deputies say they stole hygiene products from the Walgreens at 2511 Pine Ridge Road.
Deputies were on patrol when they say they noticed Darling and Longstreet throwing items out of a vehicle into a wooded area next to the pharmacy. The items were determined to be loss prevention security tags from other Walgreens locations.
Investigators say the two suspects then walked into the Walgreens with a child. So deputies followed them and say they watched the pair take multiple containers of women’s Rogaine and Crest White Strips in bags and then leave the store without purchasing any of the products.
Further investigation by deputies found Darling and Longstreet were traveling in a rental car that wasn’t leased to them. Deputies searched the vehicle and found two large trash bags filled with Crest White Strips and women’s Rogaine, all with Walgreens stickers on them. The items had been stolen from Walgreens locations around the state and totaled $2,862.41.
According to the arrest report, Florida Department of Children and Families placed the 2-year-old in the custody of his or her godmother.
Both Darling and Longstreet face charges for grand theft. Longstreet also face a charge for driving on a suspended license. Deputies say her license has been suspended since July 2017. She was also cited for not having a required car seat for the child.
Both Darling and Longstreet remained in custody at Collier County jail Wednesday.
