New York State Police News Room reports that Troopers responded to the Target location at 26 Crossing Boulevard in Clifton Park with reports of a theft in progress. As Troopers arrived, 2 suspects were exiting the store and the officers placed each of them in custody.

Troopers conducted an investigation and it was determined that these 2 suspects were working together and, on this particular occasion, were attempting to conceal and steal more than $3,000 worth of merchandise from Target. One of the suspects had been previously been banned from this property so a trespassing charge has been added. While placing each individual into custody, officers found a glass smoking device containing drug residue.


Officers arrested 43-year-old Sasha E. Deforest of Albany and 38-year-old Latoya D. Fordham of Menands. These 2 individuals have been charged with a variety of crimes. Here are some of those charges:

  • Grand Larceny in the 3rd Degree
  • Conspiracy in the 5th Degree
  • Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree
  • Burglary in the 3rd Degree
