Police identify suspects in Kohl's parking lot incident
Dec 08, 2012 (Menafn - The Santa Fe New Mexican - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --Santa Fe police say it was a mother-and-daughter shoplifting team that stole merchandise from Kohl's on Dec.1 then allegedly tried to run over the store's manager while fleeing.
Sgt. Andrea Dobyns says police have identified Jennie and Arlene Tena as the suspects in the case and believe the two had shoplifted from the store at 4401 Cerrillos Road store multiple times throughout November.
Police are searching for Jennie Tena, 41, who is charged with shoplifting and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly driving her white Infiniti sedan into the store's manager. Dobyns said Eduardo Gonzales chased the women into the store's parking lot and Jennie Tena tried to mow him down.
Gonzales told police that the driver of the car "seemed very deliberate" and that he jumped out of the way, according to Dobyns.
The two got away with about 200 in merchandise.
Arlene Tena, 21, is charged with misdemeanor shoplifting and her criminal complaint was filed in Santa Fe County Magistrate Court Friday. An arrest warrant was not issued for Arlene Tena.
According to online Santa Fe County jail records, Jennie Tena was arrested on a charge of larceny in September and another charge of shoplifting in April. Online court records show no history for these charges in either Santa Fe County Magistrate Court or state District Court.
Her daughter Arlene Tena, according to jail records, was arrested on a charge of being in contempt of court in 2010 during a civil case.
