Police charge woman with Pink theft

SARANAC LAKE – A woman was arrested at 11:28 a.m. Sunday for allegedly stealing a dress from the Pink clothing store on Broadway.

Police said Deborah J. Wagner, 61, of Saranac Lake, was seen shoplifting the $148 black velvet Graham Spencer dress on the store’s security camera at about 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 10. Police posted an image from the video on their Facebook page and in a news article printed by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, and asked for the public’s help identifying Wagner. Tips received after the image was posted led to Wagner’s arrest.

Police said the dress was recovered and Wagner was cooperative.

Wagner was charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny, both misdemeanors. She was released on an appearance ticket to return to village court at a later date.
