Women suspected of stealing from Walmart gave officer fake names, police say

MADISON, Wis. - Two women are accused of stealing from a Madison store Tuesday and giving an officer a fake name, according to a news release. 

Madison police said officers went to the Walmart on Nakoosa Trail at about 5 p.m. on a report of retail theft. 

Officers spoke to two women who police said identified themselves as other people, according to the report. When officers did a routine check on the women, they found that they had provided false names. The identities they had used were people who had significant legal issues; one person was on probation for child neglect. The name one of the women provided did not match her physical description, either. 

The women were taken to Dane County Jail.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office helped officers identify the women as 25-year-old Tiffany M. Kuehl, of Tomah, and 28-year-old Katherine R. Heldt of Baraboo. 

Kuehl was arrested on suspicion of obstructing an officer, five counts of bail jumping and retail theft. 

Heldt was arrested on suspicion of obstructing an officer, two counts of bail jumping and retail theft.
