  • The Milford Police Department arrested two suspects on theft by false pretense charges following separate incidents at the Milford Walmart.
    Harrington resident Jamie L. Brittingham, 34, was arrested on April 11 after a police investigation revealed that she and another female allegedly stole merchandise from Walmart on March 19 and returned the stolen merchandise in exchange for a gift card, according to Milford Police Department spokesman Detective Dwight Young.
    Brittingham was charged with theft by false pretense under $1,500 and third-degree conspiracy. She was arraigned and released on a $1,000 unsecured bond.
    Milford resident James J. Cuevas, Jr., 29, was arrested on April 11 after a police investigation revealed that he was involved in two separate incidents on Dec. 31 and Jan. 5 involving fraudulent returns, Young said.
    Young said the investigation revealed that Cuevas purchased merchandise from Walmart, left the store with the merchandise, returned at a later time, removed duplicate items from the store shelf and would return those items with the previous receipt for refunds.
    Cuevas was charged with two counts of theft by false pretense and use of illegitimate retail sales receipts.
