WESLEY CHAPEL — A 25-year-old woman was arrested Nov. 21 after deputies said she stole a former housemate’s Apple Watch and then bragged on Facebook that she got it for a boyfriend.
Stefanie Marie Borreli of Wesley Chapel now faces a grand theft charge. Here’s what deputies said happened:
At about noon on Nov. 1, a man was moving out of Borreli’s home with the help of a friend.
The friend noticed Borreli remove a watch from a bag during the move-out, deputies said. It was an Apple Watch worth $300.
Later, witnesses told deputies, Borreli posted a photo of a black Apple Watch on Facebook with the caption, “Ha Ha got him.”
In another Facebook post, Borreli wrote, “Got an Apple Watch for my new bae,”
She was released a few hours after her arrest on $2,000 bond.
