A woman was arrested by warrant Wednesday for allegedly stealing more than $8,000 in property from a Norwalk home last year.
Police spokesman Lt. Praveen John said officers were dispatched to an Allen Road home early on the morning of Nov. 23 for a burglary. He said the perpetrator gained entry by breaking glass in a kitchen door.
The residents told police numerous items were missing, including two Apple iPhones, an iPad, three cameras, an iHome speakers and a Nintendo Wii game console.
John said one of the Allen Road residents was able to activate a program that could locate his missing iPad, which led officers to a residence on Newtown Avenue. He said the officers had the man call his iPad and they heard it emitting a sound on the second floor.
The officers went to the second floor and knocked on an apartment door. They reported a woman, later identified as Sophie Larevoy, opened it, and she allegedly brought them the missing iPad.
John said the homepage on the iPad showed a photo of the man's wife.
Larevoy allegedly told the officers a man gave her the iPad, but she didn't know his name.
Detectives had the Allen Road residents prepare a detailed list of missing property, and it included a camcorder, a computer monitor, an Apple Airport Express, an iHome speaker, assorted Wii games, several pieces of jewelry and assorted tools.
The stolen property was worth more than $8,700, John said.
John said a patrol officer spotted Larevoy outside Crespo Spanish-American Grocery on South Main Street Wednesday and took her into custody.
Larevoy, 19, of no fixed address, was charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree larceny.
She was held on $5,000 bond and given a court date of Feb. 14.
