If you see someone selling Ralph Lauren on the streets, don’t just assume that this is just a convenient way of getting rid of hand me downs or the street salesperson has access to a wholesaler. An 18 year old in Madison was arrested for stuffing $1, 700 worth of Ralph Lauren merchandise. Elicia Gonzalez Baro perhaps didn’t wonder how she could go unnoticed stuffing 18 Ralph Lauren Polo hats and 18 shirts of the same brand in a large purse, or how the merchandise could be successfully hidden until she left the store. Perhaps going for broke, she fought back against the security officer, as if she were the one being robbed. Apparently, she was threatening violence and was loudly yelling profanities.
When Elicia Gonzalez Baro was arrested, she said she didn’t care, because she was confident her offense would be reduced to a misdemeanor, and she would be released from jail on a signature bond. She said she intended to sell the merchandise on the street. Baro may face a charge of felony retail theft and was arrested on a warrant.
