MONTROSE – Colorado’s District 58 House seat candidate Tammy Theis (D-Montrose) will continue with her campaign, despite being issued a summons for shoplifting on Thursday, Sept. 6, at a supermarket near So. Townsend Ave.

Montrose Police Cmdr. Gene Lillard said police were summoned to the store by officials reporting a shoplifting incident.

“Once police arrived, Montrose resident Tammy Theis was issued a citation for shoplifting miscellaneous merchandise under the value of $500,” Lillard said. 

On Tuesday, Theis, 54, told The Watch the incident was a “mistake” and that her campaign to take on incumbent Republican candidate Don Coram will go on.

“It was my mistake,” Theis said. “I had a campaign on my mind and it was a human error. I am gravely sorry that it happened. It was a mistake and it has not changed the campaign at all. I am still running against Don Coram and I am looking forward to debating him in October.” 

Theis had declared her candidacy just a few days before the incident occurred.
