An Iowa City woman has been accused of stealing from an Iowa City Hy-Vee store.

Arianna Musgrove, 22, was charged Aug. 22 with third-degree theft.

According to a Johnson County sheriff’s complaint, Musgrove reportedly was seen in the pharmacy section of the Waterfront Hy-Vee, 1720 Waterfront Drive, taking various items.

Store loss prevention watched as the defendant went through the aisles and placed the stolen items underneath a green shirt on top of the stroller she was pushing, the complaint said.

Musgrove allegedly took the merchandise, and the infant to the front of the store, passing many pay stations on her way.

As she was making her way out the door, loss prevention stopped her and upon confrontment, the defendant reportedly admitted to taking the merchandise.

The merchandise was valued at $35.21.

Musgrove has two previous fifth-degree theft charges from April 4, 2011, and June 17, 2011.

Third-degree theft is an aggravated misdemeanor.
