Juliet D Germanotta, 36, was arrested on February 12 by the La Crosse County Sheriff's Department at 400 La Crosse Street. That arrest followed a call to the DA's office from the NYPD saying that Germanotta was wanted for grand larceny in the third degree.

There is currently no word yet on the context of that charge. According to the NYPD warrant, her charge (155.35(1) et al) deals with theft of property that exceeds a value of $3000.

Germanotta waived extradition in her court appearance Tuesday.
