Police log: Jewelry thief, lifetime ban violated, and fake social security number
The Trumbull Police Department made the following arrests between Tuesday, Feb. 9 and Monday, Feb. 15:
Jewelry, perfume and purses
A Stratford woman was arrested for larceny in the fourth degree and possession of a shoplifting device at the Kohl’s in the Hawley Lane Mall at 8:03 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12.
Police said Stacie Provenzano, 25, was seen entering the store’s jewelry department with three large see-through shopping bags before disappearing into a changing room for more than an hour.
According to a report, Provenzano stole 39 items that were worth $1,360 while in the room and put all the merchandise in the shopping bags before attempting to leave the store.
Store security found jewelry, perfume, and purses in her possession, as well as several articles of clothing.
She posted a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, Feb. 23.
Text message leads to interference arrest
An Old Church Hill Road man was arrested for interfering with an officer and on three counts of failure to appear in the second degree at his home around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10.
Police said David Rubin, 58, gave officers a fake name, David Rubino, as well as a false Social Security number when they responded to his home after receiving a call about a domestic dispute between Rubin and his girlfriend.
According to a report, the complainant who reported the incident was the girlfriend’s ex-husband, and he called stating that he was concerned for her well-being after she texted him earlier in the night about being verbally assaulted by Rubin.
Police located Rubin’s house and took testimony from him and the woman, which is when he gave the false information.
In addition to the interference, police discovered that Rubin had three PRAWN warrants out of Bridgeport for failure to appear in court in the second degree.
According to police, those warrants stem from three separate arrests — assault in the third degree and disorderly conduct; breach of peace in the second degree; and two counts of threatening in the second degree.
The report said Rubin gave the fake name because he knew about the warrants and didn’t want to face the charges stemming from his failure to appear in court.
He was given a $1,000 bond for the interference and two $15,000 bonds for two of the failure-to-appear charges. He was also given another $50,000 bond for the third failure to appear.
Rubin is scheduled to appear in court Friday, Feb. 19.
Shoplifter violates lifetime ban at mall
A Bridgeport woman was arrested for criminal trespassing in the first degree and larceny in the sixth degree at the Westfield Trumbull mall at 5:35 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10.
Police said Tanazsia Miles, 21, stole a pair of leggings at Spencer’s Gifts inside the mall and began to run away from a store employee when confronted about the larceny.
According to a report, Miles denied stealing the see-through leggings after being stopped by security personnel who walked her back into the store where the item was discovered in her possession.
Police said Miles has had an extensive history of shoplifting at the mall and was banned from it on March 28, 2013, which triggered the criminal trespassing charge.
She posted a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday, Feb. 18.
