One woman was arrested -- and, police are still searching for three female accomplices -- in connection with August store thefts in Greenvale and Hicksville where more than $14,000 worth of designer merchandise was stolen, authorities said.

Nassau County police said Raquel Davila, 54, of 358 Irving Ave. in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, entered two T.J. Maxx stores -- one on Aug. 13 in Greenvale, the other on Aug. 23 in Hicksville -- and she and her accomplices then walked off with "assorted Michael Kors merchandise" without paying. The items were valued at $14,237.57, police said.

Davila was arrested at her home on Tuesday. Police said she was found to be in possession of cocaine at that time.

She was charged with third-degree and fourth-degree grand larceny, as well as with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Arraignment details were not immediately available.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the other three women being sought to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
