A Greene County woman was arrested twice in different communities Monday and charged with alleged crimes in Columbia and Greene counties.

Breanna N. Smith, 31, of Catskill, was first arrested at the Hannaford Plaza in the town of Kinderhook, Aaron Hicks, public information officer for state police Troop K said on Tuesday.

Police also listed Smith’s address as Oak Hill in the town of Durham.

At about 2:35 p.m., state police were sent to the plaza on Route 9 by Columbia County 911 for a reported welfare check of an individual. An investigation determined that Smith was allegedly in possession of 0.8 grams of fentanyl, stolen credit cards, a stolen cellphone and giving police a false name, Hicks said.

Smith was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a class E felony, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class A misdemeanor, and false personation, a class B misdemeanor, Hicks said.

She was given appearance tickets for Kinderhook Town Court and was turned over to state police at Catskill to face charges related to an investigation in Greene County, Hicks said.

State Police at Catskill charged Smith with two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny for allegedly being in possession of a stolen credit card and a stolen vehicle; both charges are class E felonies, Steven Nevel, public information officer at state police Troop F said on Tuesday.

While Smith was a guest at someone’s home she allegedly left the home with a 2004 Toyota 4Runner and the homeowner’s debit card. She was not given permission to use any of these items, Nevel said.

An investigation also determined that Smith charged more than $1,300 at a local Wal-Mart without the owner’s consent, Nevel said.

Smith was arraigned in Catskill Town Court and was released on her own recognizance, pending her next court appearance, Nevel said.
