    Fairfax County police say Glenis Brown, Aleisha Greenwood, Latasha Lawson and Stephanie Winter took the items from 13 different stores at Tysons Corner Center during Thanksgiving weekend. 

    Investigators said the women are part of an organized retail crime group hitting stores across the country. Their alleged crimes led to 23 felony charges and three misdemeanor charges.
