MASSENA -- A Norfolk woman is facing several felony charges for allegedly stealing a woman’s debit card while working as a cashier at Wal-Mart Supercenter in Massena.

Emily N. LaShomb, 21, is charged with two counts of second-degree forgery, one count of fourth-degree grand larceny, and two counts of petit larceny.

LaShomb made a statement to police following her arrest on Tuesday afternoon where she admitted taking Nora E. McGregor’s debit card on Sept. 5 and making two separate purchases. She first bought two packs of cigarettes and a lighter valued at $19.27, and later bought a Playstation 3 video game console, two games, and a paddle valued at $454.58, according to court documents. LaShomb signed McGregor’s name when she bought the cigarettes, she admitted.

LaShomb told police that McGregor came through her checkout line and made a purchase using the debit card, which she placed next to the credit card machine and swiped after McGregor left and forgot to reclaim it.

LaShomb was arraigned Tuesday in Massena Village Court before Justice Eric Gustafson and released unde
