A Plattsburgh woman faces a felony charge after shoplifting.

Plattsburgh-based State Police received a report Monday from a representative of the Wal-Mart in Consumer Square in Plattsburgh who observed two females shoplifting, believed to be Shannon Ducharme and "Annita Covey."

Plattsburgh-based State Police detained both women and brought them to the station.

Police said Shannon, 26, was identified, released on an appearance ticket and now faces a misdemeanor charge for petit larceny.

The other female, who said she was "Covey," police said, had no identification on her, but upon further investigation found that her real name was Amanda J. Ducharme, 24, and there was a felony warrant out for her arrest in Vermont.

Amanda now faces a felony charge for being a felony fugitive and two misdemeanor charges for petit larceny and second-degree criminal impersonation.

She was arraigned in Plattsburgh Town Court and remanded to Clinton County Jail in lieu of $750 for the criminal impersonation and held without bail for the felony charge.
