Police arrested a Topsham woman on theft charges for allegedly shoplifting more than $700 in cosmetics from Rite-Aid.

Alison W. Harding, 27, of 24 Maple St., was arrested Jan. 9 and charged with theft and violating conditions of release.

Topsham Police Chief Christopher Lewis said Harding committed the thefts hours after posting bail in Brunswick on charges of shoplifting from a Hannaford market there.

Lewis said Harding allegedly tried to return stolen items to Rite- Aid for cash.

Harding was unable to post $250 bail and was transported to Two Bridges Regional Jail where she remained until Friday, according to the jail.
