Police Obtain Warrants for Academy Shoplifting Suspects
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Corpus Christi police have obtained warrants for the arrests of two women involved in a shoplifting incident at Academy Sports + Outdoors on Aug. 14.
Police believe that 27-year old Nola Morales was the woman seen running from Academy after attempting to steal items. Exclusive footage of her daring escape across SPID on foot was captured by the 3News tower cam.
Morales was arrested back in April of this year and charged for attempting to send prescription narcotics to an inmate in the Jim Wells County Jail.
A warrant was also obtained for the arrest of 26-year old Amanda Gonzalez Macias-Chavez, who police believe was an accomplice. She was detained at the scene, but later released because police did not have enough evidence to connect her with the shoplifting incident.
Police believe that both women live in Alice, and are asking anybody with information regarding their whereabouts to call the police at 361-886-2841, or call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
