Three women and a man were arrested by North Myrtle Beach police on charges of shoplifting at Wal-Mart after store officials reported they ate candy bars, drank energy drinks and took other items without paying from the store, according to a police report.
Amanda Rose Ilisco, 17, Michael Ilisco, 39, Rosalie Margaret Ilisco, 41, and Kaylee Amanda Miller, 21, all of Little River, were charged with shoplifting after North Myrtle Beach officers were called at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday to Wal-Mart at 550 N. U.S. 17, police said.
The four are being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center, according to jail records.
It was unclear if the people were related or how, but the Ilisco’s have the same address.
The charges stemmed from loss prevention officers of the store calling police after seeing Amanda Ilisco take an energy drink and candy bar and consume them, according to the report. Amanda Ilisco met with Rosalie Ilisco and Miller in the store and they eat ate some of the candy bar before discarding the wrapper.
The employee told police that he saw Rosalie Ilisco take a pair of boys shoes, remove the tag and give them to Miller, who put them on a baby boy that was in their shopping cart, according to the report. Rosalie Ilisco then took a second pair of shoes and met with Michael Ilisco, who took two packages of children’s underwear and placed them into a Wal-Mart bag.
The employee said Rosalie Ilisco selected a package of socks and put them and the shoes in her purse, according to the report. The employee followed the four through the store as they left without paying for the items.
A store employee stopped the women in the parking lot, but Michael Ilisco continued walking and went to the garden center where he took a potted plant and went to his vehicle, according to the report. A loss prevention employee stopped Michael Ilisco there and he returned to the store where police took them into custody.
Officers discovered that Rosalie Ilisco and Amanda Ilisco had an order of protection from Pennsylvania against Michael Ilisco and he was charged with violation of order of protection, according to the report. The order expires in August 2014.
