QUEENSBURY — A two-time felon from Saratoga Springs was arrested Monday for allegedly stealing more than $1,300 worth of clothes from the JC Penney store in Aviation Mall, police said.

Giselle M. Barnes, 49, was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, in connection with a Feb. 3 shoplifting incident at the store, according to State Police.

Store staff caught her in the act, but Barnes fled, leaving some of the clothes behind, officials said.

Troopers identified her as their suspect and arrested her Monday as she met with her parole officer. She is on parole for a 2016 bail jumping conviction.

Barnes was arraigned in Queensbury Town Court and sent to Warren County Jail without bail.
