A person from China, living in Colonie, is accused of stealing more than $100,000 of merchandise from stores in several states.

This was the reason Homeland Security was at a home at 3 Thelma Street in Colonie, last week.

Wu Feng Zhang, 53, is accused of stealing from home improvement stores in Pennsylvania, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and New York. He’s charged with transporting stolen property across state lines. Zhang could face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if he’s found guilty.

The arrest is related to Homeland Security searching a home last week, on Thelma Street in Colonie, said Sheriff Craig Apple.
