An East Naples man and woman are accused of breaking into Shadowlawn Elementary and stealing bags of shoes that were going to be donated to less fortunate children.

Justin Cooper, 25, of the 5400 block of Sholtz Street, and Willow Romberg, 19, of the 2500 block of Manorca Avenue, were arrested Thursday by Collier deputies at the 2100 block of Shadowlawn Drive.

According to arrest reports, deputies responded to an alarm going off at the elementary school, only to find Cooper and Romberg kneeling down on the ground in front of a large cabinet.

Deputies said Cooper was holding a pair of shoes in his hands with two bags full of shoes on the ground next to him.

When deputies performed a pat down, a black pipe, used for smoking marijuana, was found in Cooper’s pocket, according to reports.

Cooper told deputies that they didn’t break into the school because the door was unlocked and that he was homeless and was inside of the school looking for food. He told them he was also looking for shoes, according to reports.

Deputies said inside the large bags were 13 pairs of shoes, candy, children’s toys, hygiene items, and two notebooks, all of which were to be donated to children who cannot afford shoes.

Cooper and Romberg faces charges of burglary and petit theft.
