PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The woman accused of taking $16,000 from the cash office of the Giant Eagle in the Crafton-Ingram Shopping Center was in court today for a preliminary hearing.

Darcy Hudson, 45, was held for trial on all charges. She is now also facing two new charges of criminal trespass and receiving stolen property.

Last week, police called Hudson a chronic thief.

Investigators say Hudson left the supermarket after being discovered in the cash room. She claimed she was looking for the bathroom. Later, employees discovered that money was missing.

Authorities were able to identify Hudson by surveillance video at a nearby bar, Mugshots. Officials say she stopped there for a drink following the incident.

Officials say Hudson has a long court record of burglaries and robberies in the area.
