Another theft suspect arrested

Greensburg — An additional suspect in a ring of recent videogame thefts was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of theft, all of which are Class "D" felonies.

Kali Dice, 21, is suspected of assisting Elizabeth Haler, Jonathan Owens, and Devon Sprong in stealing a current estimate of $8,333.62 in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 videogames, according to a police report. She was formally charged with three counts of theft last week, all of which are Class "D" felonies.

Shelbyville's Walmart had allegedly received a letter implicating Elizabeth Haler, Kali Dice and Devon Sprong as responsible parties for stealing merchandise from Greensburg and surrounding Walmart retailers.

Haler is also alleged to have willingly offered information to authorities as to the locations where the merchandise had been sold, a list that included GameStop, a popular videogame retailer.

As had been previously reported in the Daily News, a former Walmart employee, Devon Sprong, is alleged to have taken a device that opens anti-theft cases. Law enforcement officials believe the suspects would take games from the electronics department to the lawn and garden center. They then opened the cases and stuffed the games into purses and storage containers.

On May 23, Robert Bloom, who had been previously identified as the driver in the alleged thefts, had been arrested in Shelbyville on unrelated charges.

Det. Pennington shared with the Greensburg police that Bloom had also identified Dice, Haler and Owens' involvement with the thefts.

Dice posted bond in the amount of $405 July 2 and is scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. Oct. 29.
