Police have arrested three people stemming from the theft of $65,000 in income tax software in Hampton Roads.

Newport News police spokesman Lou Thurston says 45-year-old Kimberly Slaughter of Newport News and 41-year-old Augustine McClain of Alexandria surrendered to police on Saturday.

They were being held at the Newport News Jail on Sunday. A jail spokeswoman says Slaughter was charged with shoplifting and McClain was initially charged with a probation violation.
