$50,000 Bond Set for Maykel Correoso in Aberdeen Jewelry Theft
SIOUX FALLS - Bond has been set at $50,000 for a man accused of stealing an expensive bracelet from an Aberdeen jewelry store.
Twenty-eight-year-old Maykel Correoso, of Miami, was brought from Florida to South Dakota last week. He is charged with grand theft. The American News reports he requested a court-appointed attorney. His next court date has not been scheduled.
Correoso is accused of walking into a Riddle's Jewelry store in an Aberdeen mall last Nov. 1, asking an employee to show him a $30,500 bracelet, then snatching it and fleeing. He was later arrested in Florida for allegedly trying to steal clothing from three stores.
He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted in South Dakota.
