A York City woman already facing charges in connection with a retail theft in April in Manchester Township is now facing theft and drug charges stemming from another incident earlier that month.

A warrant was issued Wednesday for Annette Marie Ramsey, 49, of York City.

West Manchester Township Police said Ramsey stole $712.79 worth of merchandise on April 19 from Weis Markets, 1800 Roosevelt Ave.

Officers said as the woman ran away, she left her purse behind. It is unclear if Ramsey was wearing a mask as required because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ramsey is facing one misdemeanor count each of retail theft, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to online court records.

Ramsey and a York-area man, Victor Beaman, 51, already were facing charges in connection with another retail theft that occurred about 2 p.m. April 27 at  the Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, 1500 N. George St., in Manchester Township. 

Ramsey, who was wearing  a mask, was later identified from a surveillance photo, according to Northern York County Regional Police. 

She is facing one misdemeanor count each of retail theft and criminal mischief and a summary count of disorderly conduct, court documents state.

Ramsey is awaiting a preliminary hearing in that case, which has not yet been scheduled.

Officers allege she filled her cart with more than $300 worth of groceries and exited the store without paying. A witness notified store employees, who followed Ramsey into the parking lot.

When she realized she was being followed, Ramsey let go of her cart, which rolled downhill and crashed into an unoccupied parked car, officers said.

Beaman was driving the vehicle Ramsey got into as she left the store. 

He is charged with criminal conspiracy and faces two felony counts of retail theft, a misdemeanor count of recklessly endangering another person and one summary count each of reckless driving and disorderly conduct, according to court records. 

Beaman has a preliminary hearing set for June 4 before District Judge Jeffrey L. Oberdorff.
