UPDATE: Suspected Shoplifter Arrested Again, Second Suspect Charged

A woman charged in the case of the "smiling shoplifters" is now facing a new larceny charge, while the second suspect in the original case has been charged.

According to Greenville police reports, 31-year-old Kissy Cooper was arrested again Saturday, just days after getting charged for larceny at a Greenville boutique.

Rugged Warehouse on Red Banks Rd. reported clothing was stolen there Saturday morning. Cooper was charged with the crime a few hours later with misdemeanor larceny. The police report lists the value of the merchandise stolen at $25.97.

Cooper was charged last Wednesday for felony larceny at Monkee's, a boutique in Arlington Village that reported $1,300 in merchandise stolen. Two women were caught on security cameras, smiling as they shopped and shoplifted, according to police.

Police reports also say 30-year-old Natesha Williams was charged with felony larceny Friday for the theft at Monkee's.
