Alleged Shoplifters Also Charged With Trespassing

Criminal trespassing charges have now been filed against two individuals who were involved in trying to shoplift items from a local store that they had been told to stay out of. Police say citations were issued to 20-year-old Anda Michelle Coggins and her 22-year-old husband, Phillip Edward Coggins, both of Maddux Court. Ms. Coggins had allegedly attempted to steal more than $150 worth of swimsuits from the Kohl's store on West Jackson Street Tuesday night. According to police, Mr. Coggins was waiting in a car outside and allegedly knew that his wife was going inside to try and steal clothing that could be returned. Police say both had been told that they were not allowed back on the property because of previous charges against them.
