A woman was arrested by the Bettendorf Police Department after a theft occurred at the Waterfront Deli for felony burglary in the 3rd degree and felony criminal mischief in the 2nd degree from November 7th of this year.

Jessica Williams of Davenport, was with another subject during the theft. 

While trying to break into the cash register, the other subject hit the panic alarm on accident, alerting the police of the theft.

Both of the subjects fled the scene before being able to get any money. 

A GPS on the van that Williams owns showed police that the van was outside the Waterfront Deli when the theft occurred.

Williams and the other subject were also under investigation for multiple other burglaries in towns including Geneseo and Naperville.

When Williams was questioned she admitted to driving the other subject to the location to commit the burglary.
