A Westport police officer who stopped to help a broken down vehicle on the Sherwood Island Connector Saturday night discovered $7,000 worth of stolen merchandise in the car, most of it from Westport’s Jos. A. Bank men’s clothier, Capt. Vincent Penna said today.
Police arrested Paige James, 21, of Hartford who was charged with third-degree larceny and risk of injury to a minor since two juveniles were in the rented car.
Also arrested was Bria Miller, 20, also of Hartford, who was charged with third-degree larceny, as well as two counts of interfering with an officer.
According to the police report, Miller was transferred to the custody of the New Britain Police Department that had an active arrest warrant for her failure to appear.
