Woman Charged with stealing over $3,000 worth of merchandise from store



Bexar County

BEXAR COUNTY A suspect was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly stealing from a Visionworks in September.

Suspects Andrea Badillo, Randy Salazar and Michelle Reynolds were caught stealing the merchandise on video surveillance cameras inside the Visionworks Alamo Ranch store September 16.

An employee was able to get the suspect vehicle’s license plate number as the suspects drove away.

The employee contacted police and told them of the robbery, providing them a description of the vehicle, the vehicle’s license plate number, and a description of the three suspects.

Investigators obtained a photo of the vehicle’s registered owner and went to the address on the vehicle’s registration.

There investigators saw the suspect vehicle at the address.

The arrest affidavit says after 10 minutes, three individuals who matched the suspect descriptions entered the vehicle and left the address.

Investigators followed, watching Badillo, who matched the description of the vehicle’s registered owner, eventually get dropped off.

The vehicle reportedly made stops at two different residences; investigators suspect the occupants of the vehicle were attempting to sell the stolen products.

Investigators had requested backup from a marked patrol unit and initiated a stop for an investigative detention once the unit caught up to the vehicle.

Police found several pairs of stolen sunglasses with the tags still attached in the passenger seat in plain view.

Salazar and Reynolds told police during the stop that Badillo was the only one who stole from the Visionsource and that there was still stolen merchandise at her residence.

The affidavit states the two suspects, having denied participating in the theft, were released pending further investigation.

Investigators went to the Visionsource the next day to view the surveillance footage.

The affidavit states the three entered the location at separate times to give the impression they were not together, then spread into different sections of the store.

Surveillance video shows the three taking turns concealing pairs of glasses whenever employees were not looking.

At times one suspect would purposefully catch an employee’s attention, allowing the other two to continue stealing, says the affidavit.

After about 30 minutes, the three suspects left the location at separate times and reconvened at a single vehicle parked just outside the doors of the store.

Investigators recognized Salazar and Reynolds from the investigative stop that had taken place the previous day.

The store manager gave police a list of the stolen items that totaled up to 16 pairs of glasses at a value of $3,159.40.

Badillo was arrested Tuesday October 1 at 6:28 p.m. and is facing a 3rd degree felony Charge of Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity – Theft $2,500 – $30,000.

She is currently being held at the Bexar County Jail with a bond set at $1,500.

We do not currently have any information concerning Salazar or Reynolds.
