Serial shoplifter charged with felony after stealing ham

PARIS, Tex. (KXII) - A Paris woman is facing an enhanced felony theft charge after authorities say she stole a ham from a grocery store.

Officers arrested Marva Colbert, 57, Wednesday afternoon after employees at a grocery store on Bonham Street saw her trying to leave without paying for a ham.

Police say the charges were enhanced due to at least two prior theft convictions.

In 2017, Colbert was arrested after shoplifting from a Brookshires, which she had previously been banned from.
