Frazee woman in court for possessing stolen tools

A Frazee woman made her first appearance last week in Becker County District Court on a felony charge of possessing shoplifting tools and a misdemeanor property theft charge.

Tiffany Rae Bachmeier, 26, of 13037 County Highway 10, No. 1, Frazee, is accused of stealing about a dozen items from Walmart in Detroit Lakes on Oct. 26, then using a scissors (also stolen from the store) to remove antitheft devices from some of the items. The stolen items were valued at around $95.

Bachmeier is currently in custody at the Becker County Jail pending her next court appearance, at a Jan. 7 omnibus hearing. Her bail was set at $20,000 with conditions, or $40,000 without conditions.
