MADISON, Wis. -A woman who tried to steal $1,700 worth of merchandise from a store in West Towne Mall told police she was going to sell it for cash on the streets, according to a release.

Elicia B. Gonzalez-Baro, 18, of Madison, fought with a security officer at Boston Store Sunday around 5:10 p.m., Madison police said. Gonzalez-Baro allegedly stuffed 18 Polo Ralph Lauren baseball caps into a large purse and grabbed 18 Polo Ralph Lauren men’s shirts.

Gonzalez-Baro then left the store, and when the security officer stopped her she struggled, became very loud and swore at the security guard, according to the release.

After Gonzalez-Baro was arrested, she told officers she did not care about being arrested because she thought her felony arrest would be dropped to a misdemeanor and be released from jail on a signature bond, authorities said.

Gonzalez-Baro faces a tentative charge of felony retail theft and was also arrested on a warrant.
