More charges against Westport theft suspect
WESTPORT — A New York woman charged a year ago with stealing from the local Homegoods store was arrested again last week in connection with additional thefts.
Tamika Davis, 26, of New Rochelle, N.Y., was charged on a warrant Wednesday with possession of a shoplifting device and fifth-degree larceny.
Davis initially was charged with stealing merchandise from the Homegoods store on Post Road East last March. Her vehicle was seized, and after securing a search warrant to determine if “more evidence of criminal activity was in the vehicle,” police said they found bags of stolen clothing and fraudulent gifts cards.
The bags, police said, were lined with aluminum and magnetic security tag removers, which are used to circumvent store security alarms.
Bond was set at $2,500 and Davis was scheduled to appear later that day at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
