A woman accused of shoplifting from Shopko pleaded guilty to possession of stolen property Wednesday in Nobles County District Court.

Amanda Degraw, 30, submitted a petition to enter a guilty plea to a felony charge that stems from a June 2016 incident where a Shopko employee witnessed Degraw and a male individual remove electronic anti-theft devices, stuff items into Degraw’s purse and exit the building without paying, the criminal complaint states.

The complaint states an attempt to stop Degraw and the male was made, but they were not apprehended until later, when stopped on westbound Interstate 90 by a Minnesota state patrolman.

Electronics valued at $1,439.93 were discovered during a vehicle search. The complaint also lists clothing and art supplies as items stolen.

Degraw was charged with four other offenses in the case, but they will likely be dropped if the plea agreement is accepted. The court deferred a decision until a presentence investigation could be completed, after which Degraw will be sentenced.
