Restaurant Theft Suspect Found With Evidence of Other Crime: Cops



    Police were interviewing Sarah Myette about thefts at a South Windsor restaurant when they found evidence of what appeared to be another crime.

    On Thursday, South Windsor police were booking a former employee of the Little Taste of Texas restaurant accused of stealing and found evidence of another crime, police said.

    South Windsor police arrested Sarah Myette, 25, of no certain address, on Thursday at Manchester Superior Court, where she was appearing on unrelated charges.

    Police said surveillance video captured her entering the Little Taste of Texas building, on Oakland Road, in October and taking the cash and food from her former employer.

    As police were booking Myette on charges connected to that incident, an officer noticed that she had blank checks and jewelry that did not appear to be hers, police said. 

    During the interview, Myette changed the story of how she came into possession of the property repeatedly, police said. The investigating officer determined that the items came from a burglary 20 miles away in Andover on Wednesday.

    Myette was charged with including three counts of burglary in the third degree and two counts of larceny in the sixth degree. State Police will investigate Myette's alleged role in the Andover burglary.

    Myette is being held on a $76,000 surety bond and will appear in Manchester Superior Court on Friday.

    According to court records, Myette is due in court on Dec. 5 to answer to charges in Manchester, including forgery, larceny, burglary and marijuana possession.
