A Mt. Vernon woman is accused of stealing $1,092 worth of clothing from her White Plains employer by voiding transactions and allowing her boyfriend to walk out with the merchandise.
Police say Nafessa Roberts, 25, of 1338 S 6th Ave., rang up faulty transactions twice over the last three weeks while working at Nordstrom Rack at 3 City Pl. in White Plains. She has been charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony.
The first alleged incident took place on Dec. 26, when police say Roberts rang up $748 worth of clothing, then voided the transaction. Police believe her boyfriend then took the clothing and walked out of the store. Police say Roberts used the same scheme on Jan. 6, but took $1,154.25 worth of clothing.
Store security discovered the incident this week and called police. Roberts was arrested on Jan. 11. Police booked her at police headquarters, she was held for court.
