A former worker was arrested Thursday after police said she stole food and money from a barbecue restaurant in South Windsor.
Police said they obtained surveillance video of Sarah Myette, 25, of no certain address, burglarizing the Danny's Little Taste of Texas restaurant on Oakland Road during October.
"She was captured on videotape in the parking lot and in the business itself as well," said South Windsor Police Sgt. Scott Custer.
Myette was charged with three counts of third-degree burglary and two counts of sixth-degree larceny.
She is being held on a $85,000 surety bond and appeared in Superior Court in Manchester on Friday. Myette will be back in court on Jan. 11.
According to the South Windsor Police Department, Myette was also involved with a burglary at Aikido Martial Arts Academy in Andover on Nov. 28.
After she was arrested, officers seized blank checks and men's jewelry that are not believed to be Myette's, police said.
Officers discovered Myette's involvement in the burglary after determining the checks she was in possession of were from the Aikido Martial Arts Academy in Andover.
"It was great that we were able to get the jewelry back to the family that lost it on Wednesday," Custer said. "Certainly, the checks back were given back before they could be filled out and they could have suffered a financial loss."
Myette repeatedly changed her stories while being questioned by police, and Custer said that she was questioned about the blank checks. She though the Aikido Academy was her brother's synagogue, not a martial arts studio.
Myette was charged with sixth-degree larceny for the Andover burglary.
