shoplifting at a Staten Island Target.
Kim Persico, 47, was charged with criminal possession of stolen property and petty larceny and was awaiting arraignment last night, police said.
Persico, who lives in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, was caught just before noon trying to steal $597 in clothing, cleaning supplies, luggage and other items, police said.
Her lawyer Salvatore Strazzullo refused comment, as did officials at the store.
Carmine Persico, 25 years into a life sentence for murder and racketeering, remains the boss of the Colombo family. Kim Persico is married to Carmine Persico's son Lawrence. Back in 2003, he was described as a Colombo associate when he was charged in a sweeping racketeering case accusing him and 44 others of using mob muscle to take over two locals of the International Union of Operating Engineers.
His dad, however, penned a letter to the federal judge on the case, saying his son wasn't "mentally capable" of the crimes of which he was accused.
