Port St. Joe woman arrested in Apalachicola for grand retail theft

Frances Wyman
A Port St. Joe woman was arrested yesterday by Apalachicola Police Officer Timothy Davis on a charge of grand retail theft after being captured taking several items by a surveillance video from the Grady Market in downtown Apalachicola.

Frances Wyman, 52, of 7593 Americas Ave in Port St. Joe was arrested without incident after employees of the Grady Market observed and later confirmed that some high dollar items were missing from the store.

The employees notified the owner who reviewed video footage taken by the surveillance camera installed inside the store, which implicated Wyman as the perpetrator.  Afterwards the Apalachicola Police Department was called.

Although not named nor charged, Wyman told officers that she had also victimized several other stores in the downtown area.

Wyman was booked into the Franklin County Jail on State Road 65 outside of Eastpoint on a charge of grand retail theft.
