A 53-year-old Rochester Hills school bus driver was charged with felony retail fraud after she allegedly drove a school bus to the Village of Rochester Hills shopping center and tried to steal clothes from a store.
According to Lt. Steve Jacobs of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office’s Rochester Hills substation, the woman parked the Rochester Community Schools bus in the lot of the shopping center, located on the corner of Walton Boulevard and Adams Road, the afternoon of Sept. 21.
The woman entered the Parisian store, and Jacobs said she allegedly took clothing items without paying for them. Store security officers took the woman into custody at 2:40 p.m. for retail fraud. After questioning her, security officers discovered the suspect was a Rochester Community Schools bus driver and had parked the school bus in the store parking lot.
The suspect was transported to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office’s Rochester Hills substation, and Rochester bus garage officials were contacted to retrieve the school bus.
Roseanne Stacho of Rochester Hills was arraigned before a magistrate in Circuit Court in Pontiac Sept. 22, appearing without an attorney. She was charged with one count of felony retail fraud and was given a $10,000 personal bond.
“She had prior convictions for retail fraud,” Jacobs said.
