Two Illinois residents were accused of stealing from Burlington RV Superstore at 390 S. Sylvania Ave in Wisconsin. They also allegedly had methamphetamine on them, a report said.

Thomas L. Ayers (37), was charged with three felonies of uttering and fabricating a forgery and felony burglary of a motor home, possession of methamphetamine, as well as misdemeanor charges of theft, drug paraphernalia, and receiving stolen property less than $2,500

Rebecca Perez, aged 19, was arrested on felony charges of burglary or transport of a motor vehicle or trailer, possession of methamphetamine, uttering a forgery, and misdemeanor theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A criminal complaint says:

Deputies from the Racine County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Burlington RV Superstore at 390 S. Sylvania Ave. on Thursday for a report about a theft. A man and woman later identified as Ayers & Perez opened the outdoor compartments of two campers and stole numerous pieces of furniture.

They were found later on I-94 and stopped and searched. The car contained multiple pieces of yard furniture as well as two black swivel chairs. A meth pipe, 0.5 grams of meth, and $14,090 worth of counterfeit currency were found inside the car. Also included in the package were miscellaneous checks bearing different names and $14,000.

Ayers claimed they stopped by Burlington RV Superstore, but didn’t go inside any campers. He then changed his story, saying that he opened the camper door but didn’t steal anything. Then he said that he found a gaming chair next to the camper, and put it in his pontoon. Perez admitted that the meth and meth pipe were hers.

On Friday, both Ayers and Perez received a $5,000 cash bond from Racine County Circuit Court. According to online court records, a preliminary hearing has been set for Aug. 26 at Racine County Law Enforcement Center (717 Wisconsin Ave.).
