Claudia Elliston, 52, turned herself in on a warrant for fifth-degree larceny charges at Police Headquarters on Tuesday.

According to Lt. David Farrell, the investigation began with a report of internal theft on Nov. 12.

“Officers learned that Elliston was scanning the tags of purchased clothing for customers, then deleting the scans and removing the item from the customer’s bill,” said Farrell.

Elliston was captured on video surveillance committing the crime on multiple occasions. The total amount of the items not scanned was $594.29.

Her bond was set at $5,000, and she is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Friday, March 31.
