One of Philly's Most Wanted Captured at Oxford Valley Mall
Nafeesah Terry, 22, was wanted by Philadelphia police in connection with a murder and an attempted murder.
A 22-year-old Philadelphia woman wanted in connection with a 2010 murder that happened in the Feltonville section of the city was arrested Saturday at the Oxford Valley Mall.
According to the Bucks County Courier Times, Nafeesah Terry was caught after trying to pass a $100 bill on a $14 purchase at Sears.
Authorities returned clothing and change obtained using phony money at various stores in the mall, the paper reported.
Terry was sought by Philadelphia police in connection with the murder of 22-year-old Quinta Brown in Feltonville and the attempted murder of Sherenia Williams along Roosevelt Boulevard, according to city authorities and Philly.com.
Before her arrest at the Middletown shopping mall, Terry was listed on law enforcement backed PhillyMostWanted.org, which warned that she should be “considered armed and dangerous.”
According to 6abc, Brown suffered multiple gunshot wounds after being shot in 4300 block of North 8th Street on June 27, 2010. She was later pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital.
Terry is alleged to have argued with Brown hours before the murder. Later in the day, Terry and her 20-year-old brother saw the victim and both shot her multiple times in the chest, according to Philly.com and a wanted poster from police.
City police have not released many details on the alleged attempted murder of Williams that Terry was wanted for. The attempted murder also occurred on June 27, 2010, according to a wanted poster.
Court documents from Philadelphia show Terry has been arrested for retail theft in the past.
As of Sunday morning, the 22-year-old woman remains in Bucks County jail, court records show.
A teenage boy with Terry at the mall was found to have a small amount of marijuana, PhillyBurbs.com reported.
