It looks like Target was the target for a New York woman charged with stealing thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from several Target stores in Pennsylvania, including stores in Berks, Lehigh, Monroe and Northampton counties.

Torral Scott, of Queens, is accused of stealing items like computer hard drives, ink cartridges, and other items, all totaling more than $30,000, according to court documents.

Two other women, Latoya Payne and Cameo Scott, were also in on the thefts, according to court documents.

Police arrested the women at the Target store on Airport Road in Hanover Twp., Lehigh Co., in October 2012. The alleged thefts happened between June and October of last year.

The women are accused of stealing items 11 different times from seven different Target stores, according to court documents. The women told police they sold the items to someone else.

Torral Scott, 40, faces charges of organized retail theft, criminal conspiracy, retail theft, receiving stolen property and related charges.

She was committed to the Lehigh County Prison on $100,000 bail. Her preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 23.
