ALBANY - A woman from Albany was charged with shoplifting by East Greenbush Police, and it turns out she is also wanted by authorities in Albany and Colonie.

Jessica Quackenbush is accused of walking out of a Walmart last Friday with $40 worth of merchandise she did not pay for.

Police say she gave a false name but was later identified through a scan of her finger prints.

NewsChannel 13 is told Quackenbush was arrested on drug charges in Albany last summer but jumped bail.

She also failed to show up in court or complete her sentence for a drug arrest in Colonie.
