Suzanne Corona accused of shoplifting from Batavia florist
UPDATED 1:31 p.m.
Suzanne Corona, 42, was back in police custody today after allegedly trying to steal a flower arrangement from Batavia Stage Coach Florist & Gifts in the Genesee Country Mall.
Corona is charged with petit larceny.
During her arraignment in Batavia City Court this afternoon, Judge Robert Balbick said Corona is accused of stealing a table-top floral arrangement with a light in it valued at $20.
Corona has been given time to meet with a public defender before entering a plea. She is scheduled to reappear in city court on Wednesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Corona was released under supervision of Genesee Justice.
Outside of the courthouse, Corona said, "What can I say? My life is a mess and I overreact in the wrong direction."
The Batavia resident made international news last summer when she was charged with public lewdness and and adultery for engaging in sexual activity with 29-year-old former Oakfield resident Justin Amend in Farrall Park.
Corona eventually entered a guilty plea to public lewdness and was placed on probation.
Today, Corona entered the florist shop, according to owner Loretta Delpriore, and had a couple of items in her hand when Delpriore went into a back room for a phone call. When she came out, Corona was gone and so were the flower arrangements, the owner said.
Delpriore called police, identifying Corona by name as the suspect.
"I know who she is," Delpriore said. "I think everybody knows who she is."
Meanwhile, Amend, who admitted to public lewdness, is currently wanted on a bench warrant after reportedly moving to Florida before his sentencing.
