A Queens woman was arrested and charged after shoplifting at a Target store in Valley Stream on May 16, according to Nassau County police. Thirty-year-old Kenya Sanders attempted to steal merchandise from the store. Police later stopped Sanders after she went back into the store to make a return at the guest service desk. A fight broke out between Sanders and the officers who attempted to arrest her, injuring two of them. The officers were later transported to a nearby hospital.
A subsequent investigation linked Sanders to four other shoplifting instances at the store between March and May. She is charged with assault, petit larceny, grand larceny, obstructing governmental administration, and resisting arrest. She was arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead. She is due back on June 14.
