A team of officers and agents are responsible for the arrest of a woman that police say has set fire to three retail stores as a diversion to her shopliftings.
U.S. Attorney Tom Beall says Tahmekah D. Henson, 40, is charged with three counts of arson. The U.S. Attorney says Henson is accused of setting fires at two Save A Lot stores in Kansas City, Kan. and at a Happy Foods store in Kansas City, Kan.
Documents in the case say Henson set fires in store aisles so she could leave the stores with shoplifted meats during the confusion.
In each case, there were customers and employees in the stores, Beall says.
Henson lives in Kansas City, Kansas and could face additional charges.

If convicted, Henson faces up to 20 years in prison and a find up to $250,000 on each count against her.
