TUCSON – A couple already convicted of retail theft in the city of Tucson, is now facing additional charges in the town of Marana.
According to Det. Mike Torres with the Marana Police Department, 33-year-old Raven Hatfield and 35-year-old Adam Desmarias were seen on video surveillance four times stealing rolls of copper wiring and tools from the Home Depot on Costco Drive in Marana.
The detective told News 4 Tucson they were specifically taking the items for resale to make money.
Torres said in some cases Hatfield would just walk out of the store with the items in her cart. In other instances, she was stopped by Home Depot employees, she produced a receipt and then quickly left.
It was not until loss and prevention employees reviewed the surveillance video did they realize she had not paid for the items.
The couple is accused of stealing $2,500 worth of merchandise.
The incidents took place within a 30-day period.
During that time, Desmarias was sentenced to probation for organized retail theft.
His girlfriend was to be sentenced on Dec. 5. Both cases were related to the Tucson Police Department.
Both were arrested on Nov. 30, and sit in the Pima County Jail on charges out of Marana.
