Ga. woman arrested on arson, shoplifting charges

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Police in coastal Georgia say they've arrested a woman accused of lighting a fire inside a Wal-Mart to distract employees and other shoppers while she shoplifted.

Savannah-Chatham Metro police spokesman Julian Miller says 33-year-old Kena Young was arrested at her job Monday and is charged with arson, terroristic threats, giving false statements and shoplifting.

Miller says Young lit a fire in a Savannah Wal-Mart on Aug. 20 just before leaving with a shopping cart full of items.

According to Chatham County jail records, Young is being held without bond. It's unclear if she has an attorney.
