HUDSON FALLS, N.Y. — Police in upstate New York say a woman charged with theft took a shower before speaking with authorities in an attempt to make it seem like she hadn’t robbed someone.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says the 29-year-old woman got a ride to her home in Hudson Falls by another woman she did not know Thursday afternoon. Kingsbury police say the woman stole the victim’s purse after a struggle and fled to her home on foot.

Responding officers say they followed the suspect’s footprints to her home, where police say she had taken a shower to attempt to throw off police. The purse was recovered at the suspect’s home and she was arrested.

The woman faces robbery and larceny charges.
