|Velde | Chicago Police Dept|
A store security guard saw Velde stuff 27 packs of the premium razors into a shopping bag and then walk out the front door at 3030 North Broadway, police said.
Prosecutors, noting that the value of the allegedly stolen material exceeds Foxx’s $1,000 minimum by $11.80, charged the 23-year-old Lafayette, IN, resident with felony retail theft.
Any retail theft in excess of $500 is a felony in Illinois, but Foxx—concerned that the “wrong people” are becoming “justice involved”—refuses to pursue felonies unless her personal thresholds are met.
Velde, unable to post bail, has been jailed in lieu of $10,000 bond since February 12.
