Trumbull police sweep leads to five arrests
TRUMBULL — Detectives nabbed five people on outstanding warrants between Wednesday and Thursday, as a part of a periodic sweep for wanted individuals.
Arrested individuals were wanted on charges for everything from robbery and larceny to probation violations and failures to appear.
“Police periodically seek to locate offenders who fail to respond to charges brought by arrest warrant or failure to appear in court when obligated to do so,” police spokesperson Lt. Brian Weir said in a press release Thursday.
Weir said the sweep was coordinated with other local police agencies to “track down individuals who have not been held accountable for criminal incidents that they had been involved in.”
Carlene C. Booker, 39, was one of the people arrested early Thursday. Booker was wanted on charges of second-degree robbery and fourth-degree larceny for an incident where, police said, she claimed to have a knife when confronted by store security during a suspected shoplifting incident. She was arrested at her Bridgeport home, held on $25,000 bond and given a court date July 31.
Another woman, 27-year-old Jennifer Greenberg, was arrested at her Stratford home and charged with second-degree forgery, criminal impersonation, interfering with an officer and sixth-degree larceny. The charges stemmed from a July shoplifting incident, police said, where Greenberg lied about her identity. She was held on $20,000 bond and given a court date of Aug. 8.
Other arrests included Raequan M. Brown, 22, who was charged with first-degree failure to appear; Peter Mclean, 47, who was charged with violation of probation; and Paul Piccirillo, 53, who was charged with seven counts of sixth-degree larceny. All were given court dates of Aug. 12.
