QUEENSBURY — A Hudson Falls woman has been arrested for allegedly shoplifting 15 times from the same Walmart store, according to police.

Rena M. DeStefano, 32, of Delaware Avenue, was charged after State Police received a complaint from the staff at the store on Quaker Ridge Road that a woman had been caught shoplifting, authorities said.

Store security had caught her shoplifting unspecified items when using self-checkout lanes, and identified her as a suspect in 14 other theft cases, State Police said in a news release.

DeStefano was charged with 15 misdemeanor counts of petit larceny and released pending prosecution in Queensbury Town Court.
