GOP rival calling Rep. Omar a criminal is accused of stealing thousands from Target

Danielle Stella has claimed U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is a criminal because of her stance on immigration issues. But local cops are saying the Republican candidate hoping to unseat the freshman lawmaker is guilty of an actual crime: shoplifting.

News surfaced recently of her arrest earlier this year on suspicion of stealing thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from a Target store and additional goods from another retailer.

Stella says she’s innocent, though, and blames the whole thing on a case of post-traumatic stress.

She allegedly told investigators that she “remembers arriving at Target to purchase items but nothing else,” claiming that she typically shops “with someone because of anxiety around people.”

Police sought an arrest warrant for contempt of court in April after she did not appear for a scheduled court hearing.
