Police charge teen with setting up theft of shoes from local store

Charged

Mia Alyssa Botteon

SALISBURY — A Salisbury teenager is charged with helping three 15-year-olds steal shoes from the store where she worked.

The Salisbury Police Department charged Mia Alyssa Botteon, 16, of the 100 block of Carolyn Road, with one count of felony larceny by an employee and three counts of misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police received a report about 8 p.m. Wednesday that three juveniles were stealing from the Shoe Dept., 359 Faith Road. Officers caught up with the teens in the Marriott hotel parking lot.

They searched the three girls and found that one had a pair of Timberland boots in a backpack and another was carrying a pair of Nike sandals. The girls told police that they would hang out in the back of the store and Botteon would hand them the shoes.

They said they met Botteon at a party. Police said one girl had Botteon’s phone number written on her arm.

When officers went to the store, Botteon denied the allegations and her manager said she wouldn’t be involved in such thefts. But police said they obtained information that led them to charge Botteon.

Botteon was issued a $1,000 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center.
