Woman accused of taking wallet at grocery store

Posted: May 03, 2011

Picking up a lost wallet in a Chester County grocery store proved costly for a Philadelphia woman, police said Tuesday.

Natashia Greennagh, 20, was charged Friday with theft of mislaid or lost property and receiving stolen property after she allegedly helped herself on Wednesday to a wallet left at a self check-out register in the Giant supermarket in the Dilworthtown Crossing shopping center on Route 202, police said.

Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Det. William Cahill said the victim reported that a single credit card in the wallet was used for three unauthorized purchases a short time after surveillance cameras showed the wallet being taken by Greennagh.

Cahill said the investigation is continuing and charges of fraudulent credit-card use might be added.

Greennagh, whose Facebook page identifies her a Cheyney University student with an interest in criminal justice and social relations, was arraigned and released on $2,500 unsecured bail, court records said.
