FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A New Haven woman with nearly 60 prior arrests was caught Friday afternoon trying to steal $770 worth of men’s clothing and accessories from Kohl’s, police said.
Laurie Savage, 54, of Farmington Ave., put the items in a shopping cart and attempted to leave the Tunxis Hill Road store without paying around 2:30 p.m., police said.
When stopped by store security, Savage apologized and left the store, walking up Greenfield Street, where she was stopped by officers a short time later, police said.
Savage was charged with fifth-degree larceny and released on a promise to appear in court on Sept. 4, police said.
