RACINE — A Racine woman is facing charges after reportedly stealing money from Family Dollar while working as a cashier.
Stephanie E. Correa, 32, of the 1600 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, is charged with 11 counts of misdemeanor theft.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Thursday, a Racine Police officer was dispatched to Family Dollar, 2314 Rapids Drive, for a report of theft by an employee. The store’s loss prevention officer told police that a Family Dollar analyst contacted him about suspicious cancellations of sales from the Racine Family Dollar store.

The store manager watched surveillance video to look for the suspicious transactions and found out that the cancellations were actually thefts made by Correa.
Correa would reportedly ring up the customer. When the customer left, Correa would cancel the transaction and set aside the money paid by the customer. At the end of her shift, Correa counted the money in her drawer, removed the money from the canceled transactions and concealed it inside of her clothing.
The cancellations allegedly occurred 11 times between Dec. 9 and Jan. 2, and totaled $195.45.
As of Monday afternoon, Correa remained in custody on a $400 signature bond, online court records show. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for March 16 at the Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.

UPDATE: Report of person shot near golf course by Park High School; students inside safe
RACINE — Police responded Tuesday afternoon after a male was reportedly shot in the leg near Park High School, 1901 12th St. He was transported to Ascension All Saints Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Police did not immediately release the name or age of the victim, or indicate if he was a student.
The call came in at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. The incident reportedly happened in the 2300 block of 12th Street, west of the school.
Park High was placed on lockdown, said Stacy Tapp, the school’s communication director. “Students and staff inside the building are safe,” she said.
Tapp said it appears the person was shot near Washington Park Golf Course, not right outside the school. Police have yet to confirm the exact location of the shooting, but said in a news release that preliminary information indicates the incident did not occur on school property.
As of 3 p.m. Tuesday, no one was in custody in the incident.
“The investigation by the Racine Police Department is ongoing,” said Racine Police Sgt. Chad Melby, the department’s public information officer.
Racine Police investigators are interested in any additional information about this crime. Any witnesses, or citizens with information, are urged to call the Racine Police Department Investigations Unit at (262) 635-7756.
