A woman was charged Tuesday in Allen Superior Court after she allegedly took items from Kohl's and used a stun gun to get away, according to court documents.

Tyresha S. Thomas, 30, of the 700 block of McKinnie Avenue, was charged with robbery, a Level 3 felony, and theft, a Level 6 felony.

Thomas allegedly entered a Kohl's Department Store shortly after 3:30 p.m. July 26 and left with items, according to a probable-cause affidavit. The loss prevention officer attempted to stop Thomas, who then allegedly displayed a stun gun and continued to flee to the parking lot, where another loss prevention officer attempted to stop Thomas. When Thomas allegedly discharged the stun gun, the officer backed off, allowing Thomas to get into a maroon Nissan and leave the scene, the affidavit said.

Police later saw a maroon Nissan weave in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed at the 112 mile marker of Interstate 69. Police conducted a traffic stop, where one of the loss prevention officers positively identified Thomas, who allegedly had $1,846.96 worth of Kohl's merchandise in the vehicle, the affidavit said.
