Muniraben Vahora, 39, of Wood Avenue, Bridgeport, was charged with sixth-degree larceny Thursday after she allegedly tried to steal $384 worth of merchandise from Kohl's department store, 290 Tunxis Hill Road.

Vahora, who had a 1-year-old and 3-year-old with her, tried to take three silver chains, eyeliner, a boy's shirt, and a set of pans by concealing them in a diaper bag, police said.

She was released on a promise to appear March 5 in Brideport Superior Court.
