BEDFORD, N.Y. – A 31-year-old woman from the Fresh Meadows neighborhood of Queens was charged with grand larceny on Jan. 17, police said, the result of an investigation into a December theft at CVS in Bedford Hills.

On Dec. 2, three people stole skin care products, cosmetics and hair products from the store and fled on foot, police said. As they ran, police said, the thieves dropped off some of the items in a car, which police subsequently recovered.

Police identified a suspect, Aliyah Y. Black, using information on the car and video surveillance from the store.

Black turned herself in on Jan. 17 at the Bedford police station. She was charged with third-degree grand larceny, a felony, and was arraigned. Bail information was not immediately available.
