Man Caught Stealing Lingerie Says, “I plead insanity” – Canadian Citizen with Multiple Convictions Also Charged
BROOKSVILLE – A pair of would-be shoplifters appeared before County Judge Kristie Ruppe this morning, after they were caught stealing Lingerie and other items from the Walmart Supercenter on Cortez Blvd.
According to reports, 60-year-old Henry Trompeter was observed by loss prevention employees concealing women’s lingerie in his pants.
Trompeter’s accomplice, 31-year-old Marley Wylie, a Canadian Citizen, was also observed concealing various items in her purse, before they attempted to leave without paying for the merchandise.
Deputy Marijean VanSyckle conducted a background check on both suspects and discovered numerous prior felony convictions.
In addition to several theft charges, Wylie has convictions out of Lake County for aggravated child abuse, drug possession, and grand theft.
During a first appearance hearing this morning, Trompeter told Judge Ruppe, “I want to plead insanity.” Ruppe replied, “Okay, we’ll see how that goes.”
After the State Attorney provided Ruppe with Trompeter’s criminal history, Ruppe decided to raise his bond from $2,000 to $5,000. Not happy with Ruppe’s decision, Trompeter said, “Why are you raising my bond?” Ruppe replied, “Based on your prior record.” Trompeter grimaced at Ruppe and said, “Come on!” Ruppe, growing more aggravated with Trompeter’s disrespectful attitude, stated, “Sir, you might want to be quiet now and walk away.”
Mylie is charged with felony petit theft and possession of marijuana. Her bond was also increased from $3,000 to $6,000.
It is not known why Mylie has not faced deportation from the United States or if the Department of Homeland Security has been notified of her new charges.
According to a recent National Post article, a Canadian publication, about 100,000 Canadians live illegally in the U.S.
Both suspects remain behind bars at the Hernando County Jail at this time.
