OKLAHOMA CITY -

One of the three female Target thieves was caught and arrested on several charges in Oklahoma County.

Last December, three women allegedly stole merchandise valued at $800 from an Oklahoma City Target. Video surveillance caught the women leaving the parking lot in a tan or gold Chevy Suburban. Police were able to track the tag number to Nakita Young.

After the surveillance footage was released to the public, an anonymous tip assisted police in identifying another woman, 32-year-old Latoya Lee.

According to the anonymous tip, Lee's vehicle matched the description taken from the Target video surveillance. The tip also included information about Lee stealing from Victoria's Secret, Aeropostale and other retailers.

When police asked if Young was involved in the Target theft, the anonymous individual said she assisted Lee in purchasing the suburban but had no involvement in the thefts.

According to police, Lee matched the suspect and vehicle tag information on two additional larceny cases at Victoria's Secret and Pacific Sunwear Stores.

On January 22, police responded to a larceny call at Aeropostale located in Penn Square Mall.

The police report stated an Aeropostale employee left to use the restroom, and when she returned, several clothing items were missing. The employee reviewed the video surveillance and saw three women take $2,242 worth of merchandise from the store. After police viewed the video, they were able to identify Lee as one of the suspects.

The anonymous tip provided general information on Lee's whereabouts, and authorities located her at 720 N.E. 79th St.

Lee was arrested for Oklahoma County warrants for Violation of Suspended Sentence on a Larceny of Merchandise from a Retailer, Suspended Sentence for Assault and Battery with Dangerous Weapon, Obtaining Money by False Pretense and Driving Under Suspension.

Lee also had warrants through Tulsa County for Receiving and Concealing Stolen Property and Larceny of Merchandise from a Retailer.
