Police on Tuesday arrested a 43-year-old New Haven woman by warrant and charged her with criminal impersonation, first-degree identity theft and second-degree forgery.
On Nov. 19, officers had been dispatched to Manfredi Jewels on Elm Street regarding an attempted fraudulent purchase of a $15,000 Rolex watch, according to a police report.
Through an investigation, police determined that the New Haven woman was the suspect in the New Canaan incident as well as the suspect in a similar incident at the Manfredi Jewels in Greenwich, the report said.
On Tuesday, police traveled to state Superior Court in Stamford to serve the arrest warrant on her, it said.
According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, the woman is already facing multiple criminal charges from various law enforcement agencies, including:
- Greenwich Police—first-degree identity theft, second-degree forgery, two counts of criminal impersonation, and second- and third-degree larceny;
- New Haven Police—third-degree strangulation, interfering with an emergency call, third-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace;
- Branford Police—first-degree forgery, two counts of first-degree identity theft, first-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit first-degree forgery;
- State Probation Department—second-degree larceny and probation violation.
The woman was remanded to custody of the court with a later court date for the new charges out of New Canaan, police said.
