Update: 3 Alleged CVS Toiletry Thieves Arrested

Tarrytown Police arrested three young women from Yonkers found with $600 worth of CVS products in their possession; one woman had several active arrest warrants.

Update: the original post has been updated with additional information from the Tarrytown Police Department.

On Sunday December 30 at 9:45 p.m., Tarrytown police received a call from an employee at the new CVS at Bridge Plaza that he was watching people stealing items inside the store.

Police where able to locate three young women as they were exiting the store, all of Yonkers addresses, and arrest them on charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree. Irvington Police assisted in the arrest.

The defendants are: 

  • Lawren Tucker, 20, Yonkers
  • Sharhonda Glover, 26, Yonkers
  • Shideara Custis, 21, Yonkers

Found in their possession, said Lieutenant William Herguth, were a “large quantity” of items, valued at approximately $600, including:

Bandaids, lipstick, Clear Eye, Crest Whitening Toothpaste, Nyquil cough medicine, Infamel

“In our experience, people typically steal items and sell them in the city to small stores,” Herguth said. 

Glover and Custis both posted $200 bail each and were released with return court dates. Tucker also posted $200 bail with a return court date but was turned over to Yonkers Police Department for an active arrest warrant out of their jurisdiction. Tucker also had an active warrant out of Woodbury Police Department, who said they would not be executing their warrant.

Looking at the police blotters lately I am noting that the majority of the people in non-domestic incidents are from out of town. (My completely unscientific tally but..)These three thieves are from Yonkers, the recent article about a tire thief from the Bronx, the heroin bust was a Peekskill & Tarrytown duo. I wonder why we are attracting the criminal from the bigger town/cities.

I've been noticing the same. I wonder why too. We are in this "corridor" of highway and bridge accessibility, but pity the thief who tries to make a Route 9 getaway!

Irvington police added this background from Rivertowns Patch, a story about Sharhonda Glover and an accomplice from 5/20/12: •An off-duty officer in the Lambros Service Center observed a couple allegedly steal a pack of Newport Cigarettes and and sour cream and onion potato chips. The couple was stopped in Jaffray Park, where police impounded the vehicle, which contained a number of other items they believed to be stolen including: baby formula, energy drinks and other items they believe came from CVS and Walgreens in Tarrytown. A 20-year-old Yonkers man was charged with petit larceny and possession of stolen property. He was arraigned; bail was set at $250, which he could not post at that time; he was transported to the WCC Jail in Valhalla. The woman, a 26-year-old Yonkers resident, was charged with driving with both previous charges in addition to driving without a licence and driving an unregistered vehicle. She posted $250 bail and was released. This is an active investigation; police believe there may be more charges pending
