Mother, daughter charged with swapping dress label

 
A mother and daughter are facing charges after staff at a store on Williams Road said the pair switched a price tag on a girls dress in order to pay a lower price on the $33 garment.
Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the store about 6:30 p.m. and security personnel at the store told them they had watched Christina Laughlan try to pull the price tag off a tag on a dress in the girls’ department. Unable to pull the price sticker off the tag, security said Laughlan ripped the tag off the dress. She then put the dress back on the rack.
Laughlan then handed the price tag and a more expensive dress to her mother Kathryn Laughlan to bring to a cashier.
The deputy said he watched video of the incident and it confirmed security’s version of events — the pair had attempted to pay $14 for a $33 dress.
Both Christina Laughlan, 25, 53A Central Lane, North Tonawanda, and Kathryn L. Laughlan, 2025 LaSalle Ave., Niagara Falls, were charged with petit larceny.

• CHARGED: Michelle D. Sanchez, 35, 804 17th St., Niagara Falls, was charged with driving with a suspended registration and a traffic ticket about 3 p.m. Thursday, according to Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies. A deputy said he noticed Sanchez throw three to four cigarette butts out of window of her car onto the ground while on Military Road, at the Porter Road intersection. After stopping her, the deputy said he discovered the car’s inspection sticker had expired. A computer check showed her car’s registration had been suspended on June 12 due to parking violations.
