A Vandergrift woman was arrested by state police after stealing more than $1,300 worth of merchandise from a Kittanning Walmart — her second major shoplifting attempt this month, according to state police in Kittanning.

Naomi Sue Penn, 32, was arrested following the Feb. 9 theft, according to police.

She is charged with retail theft and trespassing.

In the previous incident on Feb. 3 she allegedly stole $900 worth of merchandise, police said.

She had an outstanding warrant for her arrest from Westmoreland County, where she was charged with retail theft following a January incident, court records show.

She is being held in the Armstrong County Prison on $10,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing before District Judge James Owen is scheduled for Feb. 14.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
