According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office investigation, Jimmy Carter Lamar and Donkeria Euniece Burgess stole dozens of items including Stanley cups, Bogg Bags, fragrances and other products during a 30-day period, totaling between $15,000 and $20,000. Thefts occurred at numerous stores including Dicks Sporting Goods, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Ulta Beauty and others crossing multiple judicial circuits.

“his duo stole up to $20,000 worth of items, including Stanley cups, Bogg Bags and more from stores in four Florida counties within a 30-day period,” Moody said. “Organized retail theft carries a real cost to businesses, resulting in even higher prices for consumers.

According to the investigation, Lamar and Burgess stole items including Stanley cups, Bogg Bags, high-end fragrances, cosmetics and household items by concealing the items and quickly leaving the store without paying. In a 30-day period from February to March, the duo stole $15,000 to $20,000 in merchandise from retailers including Dicks Sporting Goods, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Ulta Beauty, CVS and Walmart. The thefts occurred in Brevard, Broward, Orange and Palm Beach counties.  

Burgess committed the crimes while serving probation for a previous aggravated child abuse charge. PBSO separately arrested Lamar on charges for fleeing and eluding authorities in March. Burgess remains at large. 

Both individuals are charged with second-degree felony organized retail theft. 

Attorney General Moody’s OSP will prosecute the case.
