ENFIELD, Conn. (WGGB) — Police have arrested a second woman accused of setting a fire inside an Enfield Target store.

Thursday, Enfield Police arrested 25-year-old Danishia Thomas of Enfield on charges of second degree arson, first degree reckless endangerment, sixth degree larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth degree larceny.

Police allege that Thomas and another woman – 19-year-old Erica Lynn Anderson of Enfield – set a fire inside the store on January 27 in order to create a diversion so the pair could shoplift.

Anderson also was arrested earlier this week for her suspected involvement in the incident. She is facing similar charges.

    These 2 idiots should be the poster children for birth control use……their dna should not be reproduced! Thankfully nobody were injured from their intentional actions! Hey girls, when you get out of jail, try working so you will have money instead of stealing. It’s a concept that you might want try!! All kidding aside, was it worth it? You get to spend the better part of your youth rotting in jail. You will miss holiday celebrations, weddings and other family & friend events, you will miss your choice of meals as well as choice of clothes & shoes to wear, your cell phones, no trips to the malls, parties, dancing, music etc. When you get out of jail, your job prospects and college/ school will be minimal as well as your future. Was it worth it?

    Couple of cuties. Their DNA should not be reproduced. I’m sure they already have a couple each already.

    I suspect there isn’t much of a family, or education here. Oh, and birth control ? Bet they both have kids.
