A New York woman has been charged for an October 2017 jewelry store robbery in Wilton. Police Detectives traveled to Bedford Hills Correctional Center and took custody of Paula Hurtado on an active arrest warrant. The 38-year old Astoria woman was extradited to Connecticut to face felony Larceny charges.
Wilton Police say she is the third of four suspects. Three women distracted the two salespersons while a man allegedly took $21,000 worth of jewelry from behind the counter and put it in a brown paper shopping bag. The suspects purchased an item with cash and left with the stolen items.
Hurtado posted bond and is due back in court on the 26th. The final suspect in the case is currently incarcerated and will be extradited from New York when they complete their prison sentence.
32-year old Erika Santa of Jamaica Queens and 56-year old Yolanda Santa of Ridgewood were charged. Both are due in court on April 23rd.
