Stolen DVDs recovered

Red Wing police on Wednesday arrested a woman suspected of stealing more than 500 DVDs and video games from Wal-Mart.

Investigators executed a search warrant at the residence of Amelia Gallo, 521 Maple St., and reportedly recovered $8,700 in DVDs and games. The arrest stemmed from a Dec. 15 incident when Wal-Mart employees reported seeing a woman on surveillance tape leave the store with unpaid merchandise.

Investigators suspect the woman, later identified by police as Gallo, stole the items during multiple trips to the store.

Gallo, 31, was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and theft. She was booked and released.
