A New Haven woman was arrested in court Tuesday in connection to a series of fraudulent returns made at department stores in New York and Connecticut, including the Marshall's in Fairfield.

According to police, Ronnisha Carney, 24, allegedly made fraudulent returns to Marshall's. An investigation was launched in June and found that Carney is reportedly part of a group of people that made 199 fraudulent returns in Connecticut and New York, totaling approximately $32,000, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

Carney was originally arrested in connection to the fraudulent Marshall's returns on June 21, but she allegedly gave police a fake name. She was arrested again on Wednesday and charged with three counts of identity theft, three counts of criminal impersonation, and fourth-degree larceny. She was held in lieu of a $1,000 bond and is next scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 16.
