A San Antonio police officer accused of shoplifting from Ingram Park Mall is now accused of another crime involving a woman who came forward after seeing the officer's mugshot in a news report.

According to court documents, Stephanie Monique Solis, 40, is accused of arranging to meet up with the alleged victim to buy a bottle of perfume.

The victim told investigators Solis showed up to the meet dressed in a police uniform and claimed she was investigating people who buy stolen property. Another man, not named in court papers, was reportedly with Solis. The pair is accused of taking the victim's wallet and $5,000 worth of perfumes the victim had in the car, according to court papers.

After taking the items, the victim said she followed Solis to her apartment complex, and added that she recognized her when she saw a report regarding Solis' shoplifting arrest in January.

Solis is now charged with official oppression in connection with the incident.
