Felony Larceny Charge for New Canaan Woman, 56


Police last week arrested a 56-year-old New Canaan woman by warrant and charged her with first-degree larceny.

The warrant related to reported fraudulent activity in an online banking account in May 2022, police said.

Under state law, a person is guilty of first-degree larceny, a felony-level offense, if he or she obtains a property or service via extortion or “the value of the property or service exceeds twenty thousand dollars,” among other reasons.

The woman, a Bank Street resident, turned herself in on the active warrant at about 2:07 p.m. on May 13. 

She was released on $5,000 bond and scheduled to appear May 25 in state Superior Court.
