A 33-year-old woman has extra trouble on her hands thanks to a Crime Stoppers report that aired on KSAT 12 News in December.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that San Antonio police originally were looking for Christine Jarussi, who also uses the name Christine Venegas, in connection with a series of thefts at a local mall.
Jarussi and her husband, John Anthony Jarussi, 35, were accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise from stores including Toys R Us and Williams-Sonoma.
Police issued a Crime Stoppers bulletin Dec. 18, asking for the public's help in locating the pair.
