WESTPORT, Conn. – A Stamford woman was charged with second-degree larceny after turning herself into Westport police Monday.
Lucy Pedroza, 52, allegedly stole more than 30 handbags, pieces of clothing and from her employer's home when she worked as a nanny from April 2011 to July 2013.
The employer reported thefts from her home in August 2013, after having fired Pedroza, whom she believed was responsible for the thefts, police said.
Pedroza was found by her former employer on Facebook in December, and the online photographs allegedly showed off many of the stolen items. Westport police obtained a search warrant for her apartment, and Pedroza turned herself in once she learned there was a warrant out for her arrest, police said.
She posted $10,000 bond and is schedule to appear March 17 in Norwalk Superior Court.
