AMSTERDAM-Sheriff's deputies announced they arrested five people over the weekend for allegedly shoplifting at Price Chopper and Walmart.
Tonya N. Lee-Hayes, 30, of 13 N. Perry St., Johnstown, and Amy S. Hasenfuss, 32, of 41 East State St., Gloversville, were both charged after allegedly being found stealing electronics, toys, sporting goods and bath supplies. When deputies arrived, one female was in custody and the other fled from Loss Prevention, they said. Amsterdam police assisted with the location of one of the women. Both were charged with felony fourth-degree grand larceny due to the high value of merchandise stolen, deputies said.
Dorissa Dee Butler, 18, of 10 Van Wyck St., Gloversville, and Cassondra S. Lilley, 26, of 60 Prospect St., Gloversville, were charged Friday night. They allegedly concealed merchandise on them and attempted to leave Walmart without paying. Loss prevention stopped and detained the two women, who were later charged with one count each of petit larceny, deputies said.
Jorge E. Sanchez, 22, of 227 Woodrow Road, was charged Saturday night after he was allegedly seen concealing items and leaving the store. He resisted Loss Prevention before he was taken into custody, deputies said. He was charged with one count of petit larceny and released.
All were given appearance tickets for Amsterdam Town Court and released.
