Police: Teen Sisters Go Spring Shopping in White Plains, Don't Pay

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A Yonkers woman, 33, was arrested April 29 and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny for stealing more than $1,300 worth of merchandise from a designer jewelry store in The Westchester Mall, according to a police report.

A guard at the store told police he saw Shazia Kiany take six items -- one Stephen Dweck necklace, worth $395, one pair of Devon Leigh earrings, worth $325, one Love Heals necklace, worth $295, one pair of Barrera earrings, worth $275, and two yellow metal jewel-studded brooches.

The guard told police the suspect then hid the items in her blouse and tried to leave the store without paying. Guards stopped her and recovered most of the items, police said.
