Two Bronx women were charged Saturday with allegedly stealing more than $450 worth of merchandise from three stores at the Stamford Town Center mall.

Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin said Fiona Gore, 19, of 843 E. 218th St., and Christina Peart, 23, of 1760 Bruckner Ave., were arrested after off-duty officers at the mall spotted the two taking merchandise at the H&M store and sticking it in leggings under a long skirt.

The pair was allegedly caught with $160 of jerseys and dresses from H&M along with $235 from Temptations and $60 from Charlotte Russe, Conklin said.

Gore and Peart were both charged with three counts of sixth-degree larceny and three counts of conspiracy.

Gore was released on $2,500 bond. Peart, who also has a warrant for a shoplifting arrest out of Danbury, was held on $5,000 bond.
