Westport Police arrested a Derby woman on a warrant Thursday for stealing from the Post Road East salon where she had been employed, police said today.

According to Capt. Samuel Arciola, Karla Malerba, 31, turned herself in after learning about the warrant stemming from a larceny complaint by her employer back in January.

“From the complaint received, it is alleged that Malerba, while working for a local business, had stolen company money over a period of time,” Arciola said.

Charged with third-degree larceny, Malerba was released after posting a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, Aug. 10.
