A 22-year-old Iron Ridge woman may have had plans to cook more than a “nice meal” after she was caught stealing meat from Woodman’s last week.
Cindy Justman was charged Monday in the Waukesha County Circuit Court with possession of narcotic drugs and misdemeanor retail theft. She faces up to 4-1/4 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines if convicted.
According to the criminal complaint:
A Woodman’s employee caught Justman as she attempted to steal two bags of meat under her right arm at roughly 8:20 p.m. Feb. 9. Justman was taken to the loss prevention area where she met with a Falls police officer. She told the officer that she wished to “cook a nice meal,” but she didn’t have enough money to purchase the food.
She told police she was on probation for a misdemeanor theft conviction. She was arrested, and during a search police discovered .06 grams of heroin hidden in her bra.
Possession of heroin is a Class I felony in Wisconsin.
