Charges also may be pending from the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office for both Smith and an accomplish.
DeJesus was charged with five counts each of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree and Grand larceny in the Third Degree. She was taken to centralized arraignment and will appear in Newark Village Court on the charges.
