A 22-year old Auburn woman was arrested by State Police on Monday following a job interview at the JC Penney at the Finger Lakes Mall.
After completing the interview, Jessica Richardson left the office and then asked to return to retrieve her cell phone. She allegedly took a purse and wallet belonging to an employee and went to the Spirit Halloween store in the mall, where she purchased two Halloween costumes with a pre-paid debit card belonging to the employee.
After being arrested, troopers found Richardson was in possession of a taser and was also wanted on a pair of active warrants in Buffalo.
Richardson was remanded to the Cayuga County Jail.
