Mother of bombers arrested last year for theft

The mother of the two Chechnyan brothers suspected of setting off two bombs at the Boston Marathon was arrested last year for allegedly stealing $1,600 worth of clothes from an upscale department store.

Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, 45, was charged with two counts of malicious/wanton damage and defacement to property after allegedly swiping the merchandise from a Lord & Taylor in Natick, Mass. in June 2012.

She stole $1,624 in women’s clothes, according to a Patch.com story.

Her sons allegedly left two bombs, packed with ball bearings and other materials, near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

The terror attack left three dead and 183 injured.

They were captured on CCTV by a different Lord & Taylor store on Boylston Street.

The FBI released those CCTV images of the two brothers Thursday evening and later that night
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed in a shootout with law enforcement in Watertown, Mass.

A police officer was shot dead near the campus for Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Her other son, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is still on the run and considered by authorities to be armed and extremely dangerous.
