A 69-year-old Villager has been sentenced in the attempted theft of items in December from the Goodwill Superstore in The Villages.
Security cameras captured Prakob Beeman of 711 Melendez Way putting five items into her purse and then leaving the store, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. The items had a total value of $16.37. She was stopped by store security and taken back into the store. When a deputy arrived, Beeman told the deputy she had “messed up and took the items,” the arrest report indicated.
On Dec. 28 in Sumter County Court, Beeman admitted guilt in the case. She was placed on six months probation and ordered to perform 20 hours of community service.
