Police have issued an arrest warrant for a Connecticut woman accused of larceny over $250 and felony larceny of a motor vehicle. According to reports, the 35-year-old woman was staying at former coworker's house. She had apparently met the man while they were both working at the Mardi Gras Gentlemen's Club. The man apparently let the woman borrow his 2013 Hyundai Elantra to go to a court hearing on March 31.
According to the man, he did not hear from her again. The woman allegedly refused to take the 51-year-old man's phone calls and did not return the car. The man told police that he came home on April 7 and found $3,000 cash and the woman's clothes missing. The front door was reportedly also unlocked.
Two days before the alleged theft, local police ran the man's license plate as part of a probable cause report. According to court documents, the larceny over $250 includes the cash missing from the house as well as tools and a GPS that were in the car. The case is still under investigation, and the woman has yet to be located. Authorities believe she may have left the area.
In cases like these, where a person has been charged but not yet arrested, it's important to remember that the other side has yet to be heard. It may be difficult for the prosecution, if this case goes to trial, to prove that it was the woman who took the cash from the house. Once a person knows that there is an arrest warrant out, however, it is in the person's best interests to come forward so that the case can be handled and all of the facts presented.
