Medora woman arrested for theft from three stores


A Medora woman was arrested Thursday for stealing items from three different retailers when police responded to a report of theft at Walmart Supercenter in Seymour.

Kennedie Paige Miller, 29, faces charges of theft, a Level 6 felony; criminal trespassing, a Class A misdemeanor; and two counts of fraud, both Level 6 felonies.

Seymour Police Department Lt. C.J. Foster said in a news release that Walmart asset protection contacted the department and requested assistance in identifying an individual who had taken some items from the store.

Police looked at the video footage and immediately recognized the suspect as Miller, Foster said.

In the footage, the suspect had obtained a set of keys and a security removal device from a drawer and unlocked a cabinet that contained Apple and Garmin brand products.

Foster said a Seymour officer went on to observe the suspect in a local retail store late Thursday afternoon.

Miller was taken into custody, and Foster said she was in possession of identification, credit cards belonging to other individuals and clothing from Maurices and JCPenney with the price tags still attached.

Police determined Miller had used two of the credit cards at Walmart involving separate transactions.

On Friday, police determined the clothing Miller had in her possession was stolen from Maurices and JCPenney in Seymour.

Foster said additional charges will be requested involving the stolen clothing from Maurices and JCPenney.

Police obtained a Jackson Superior Court I search warrant for a purse belonging to Miller, which was not in her immediate possession when she was arrested.

During the search of the purse, police located the keys that were used to remove the lock from the cabinet containing the Apple and Garmin items, the security device removal tool, two Apple watches that were on display at Walmart, Verizon sim cards and AT&T sim cards.
