A 62-year-old woman was arrested on a warrant July 6 after she stole merchandise from Whole Foods Market on Feb. 6, 2023, Darien police said.

Police gave the following account, including accusations not proven in court:

In February 2023 (when the woman was 61), a manager at the supermarket at 150 Ledge Road told police that an older woman was seen stealing items from the store and later putting them in a blue 2020 Mazda CX-5.

Three days ago, on Saturday, July 6, the woman (who lives on Summer Street in Stamford) was arrested on a warrant, apparently after she went to police headquarters.

She is charged with sixth-degree robbery and is scheduled to appear July 19 in state Superior Court in Stamford. Police have not said whether she has been released on bail.

The woman was also charged with sixth-degree robbery by Stamford police on Jan. 4, 2022, according to the Connecticut Judicial Branch website. That charge was filed more than a year before the alleged Darien incident.

Her bail in that case is set at $7,500, and she was released after posting 10 percent of that amount, according to the website, which also said she was charged with failing to appear in court on Nov. 2, 2022, in that court case. July 19 is now her next court date in both cases.
