The following cases were among those heard in Wrentham District Court last week:
Kimberly Curry, 24, of 64 Dunham St. in Attleboro, was charged on Wednesday with receiving more than $250 worth stolen property. Police allege she took 26 Yankee Candles from the Cracker Barrel outlet store.
According to an affidavit by Wrentham Police Officer Stephen Saulnier, police were dispatched to the Cracker Barrel store in the Wrentham Outlets at around 7pm on Nov. 9 on a report of a female shoplifting.
Saulnier said, as he was traveling through the main entrance, a man pointed out a silver minivan on the exit road, claiming the shoplifter was inside.
Saulnier said he saw the vehicle make a right turn and travel southbound on South Street. He said his blue lights were on, and he saw the operator of the minivan looking at him.
Saulnier said he followed the vehicle, and saw it turn right on High Street. He said he noticed he was traveling at 60 to 65 miles per hour in a 40 zone, and was not gaining on the van.
Saulnier said he was able to close the gap once the vehicles were on a straight road, and said the van pulled over.
He said he spoke to the driver, who reportedly said he had tried to evade police because he thought his license was bad.
According to Saulnier, there were three adults and two children in the van. he said he recognized a woman from a previous incident in which Yankee Candles were taken from the Cracker Barrel store.
He said the woman, Curry, admitted she was the same person from that incident.
According to Saulnier, police found 26 Yankee Candles in a box in the can. Curry allegedly admitted that she had stolen the candles.
Brenda Correa-Guzman, 30, of 86 3752 Ave. in Elmhurst, NY, was charged on Friday with larceny of more than $250, after she allegedly shoplifted more than $1,800 worth of merchandise.
Wrentham Police Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald said in an affidavit that he was on plainclothes duty at the Burberry outlet store on Nov. 10 from 4pm to 10pm.
He said he was in the back of the store, viewing surveillance footage at 4:15pm. He said he saw a man and woman placing items into a bag that the female, Correa-Guzman, was carrying.
Fitzgerald said the two left the store quickly after placing the items in the bag. He said he left the back room and headed to the front of the store, and said he saw the two individuals about 75 feet ahead of him.
According to Fitzgerald, the male realized he was being followed and began to walk faster. Fitzgerald said he identified himself as a police officer, and ordered the two to stop.
According to Fitzgerald, the man began to run, while Correa-Guzman increased her pace.
Fitzgerald said he was able to catch up to the woman, and ordered her to stop. He said the woman did so. He said Correa-Guzman had a bag of Burberry merchandise with her (with 6 hats and two jackets), worth $1,840. He said the bag was lined with aluminum to fool scanners.
