ROSS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — At least five police departments are trying to track down a pregnant woman who’s allegedly on a crime spree, and violence has been used in at least two of the cases.
Ross Township Police say Corren Holman, of Oakdale, is wanted in a string of store thefts over the past month. On Facebook, her friends call her “Corey,” but her boyfriend calls her “his goddess” and the mother of his unborn son.
That boyfriend, Kyle Ilgenfritz, has also been implicated in at least two of the incidents.
“In one instance, drug paraphernalia was found, and that leads me to believe there is a serious level of determination that will continue,” said Ross Township Police Sgt. Ben Dripps.
One of the incidents, at the Ulta store in Ross Township, was caught on surveillance video. Investigators say it shows Holman scuffling with store employees.
Prior to the incident in Ross, police in Butler Township say Holman is suspected in two thefts at the Ulta store there on May 10 and 12. The incident at the Ross Township Ulta was the next day, Friday, May 13.
Holman is also suspected of thefts in Upper St. Clair, Homestead, and Pittsburgh; all prior to hitting the Target store in Ross Township at 4:30 p.m. last Friday.
Target does not want the video released, but the images are clear.
“You can see she provides resistance as well,” says Sgt. Dripps.
Police say as Holman struggled to get free, Ilgenfritz pulled up in a red car, jumped out, assaulted the security guard, and then the two ran for the car.
They partially drove over the sidewalk and speed off towards McKnight Road, almost hitting a couple in the crosswalk to Petco.
“I think you can say they are desperate at this point,” Sgt. Dripps says.
The thefts have been in the $600 to $1,700, but Sgt. Dripps says its Holman’s actions that have him concerned.
“We have seen her assault employees, we’ve seen here assault other customers, I fear what could be next,” he said.
Ross Township Police are looking for any other police departments that may be investigating a similar instance. Also, they want to hear from anyone who might know the couple or know of their location.
