Actress Shelley Morrison, who plays a housekeeper on NBC’s comedy “Will & Grace,” was charged with misdemeanor grand theft Tuesday for allegedly trying to shoplift jewelry from a West Los Angeles department store.
Morrison was arrested April 23 after surveillance cameras filmed her allegedly trying to steal jewelry worth about $450 from the Robinsons-May store in the West Coast Pavilion, said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the city attorney’s office. That office will prosecute the case.
Morrison, also known as Rachel Dominguez, posted $20,000 bail and was released the same day.
Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, said that because Morrison has no prior convictions, prosecutors decided that the offense was not serious enough to be tried as a felony.
