EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. – East Greenbush Police say they have
arrested two Albany women who are accused of stealing a television set from a
store and giving police wrong names.
Authorities arrested Delana Jacobs, 21, and Debra Ann
Singletary, 46, on Thursday. They have been charged with Burglary and Larceny
for allegedly entering a Wal-Mart and leaving with a 50 inch HD television set without
paying for it.
Jacobs and Singletary have also been charged with False
Personation and Forgery in the 2nd degree for assuming identities of
other people. The women allegedly provided police with false signatures on
their fingerprint impressions. Authorities found the women's true identities
after an automated fingerprint report rejected the names. Police then found the
women had a prior criminal record.
