Pierre was arrested Monday by county police detectives inside New York Medical College in Valhalla, where she was allegedly walking the halls in a stolen white lab coat. Authorities say she was wearing a lanyard around her neck with an ID card made to look like a legitimate college ID.
Students at the medical college had been victimized previously by a thief who stole wallets and credit cards from unattended pocketbooks.
Police, who executed a search warrant at Pierre's home, recovered $47,000 in merchandise, including a pair of diamond earrings, electronics, $8,000 worth of gift cards and designer handbags and shoes. Pierre's 2005 Mercedes was impounded as part of the investigation.
Pierre is also a suspect in numerous other thefts around Westchester and remains under investigation for possible involvement in additional crimes.
