WESTON, Conn. A Weston woman faces a charge of third-degree larceny after she was arrested Saturday in connection with an incident of identity theft that occurred in town last summer.
According to Weston Police, Rachel Johnson, 36, of Steephill Road, was pulled over by Norwalk police after a routine traffic stop. During that stop, police found an active warrant for her arrest in Weston. That active warrant, according to Detective Carl Filsinger, stemmed from an incident last summer in which a Weston resident reported to police that someone gained access to his or her personal information, resulting in a theft of $2,000.
Johnson was transported to Weston headquarters by Weston officers, where she was placed under arrest. She was released on $10,000 bond and has a court date set for March 8 in Norwalk.
