An East Windsor woman accused of stealing eyeglass frames has been arrested in South Windsor and charged with larceny in the fourth degree.

South Windsor police arrested Bernice Tompkins, 47, of Broad Brook, on an arrest warrant on Saturday.

The charges filed against Tompkins are in connection with a complaint a local eyewear store filed in January 2013 after staff noticed that several pairs of eyeglass frames were missing after Tompkins had visited the store.

Surveillance video shows Tompkins entering a store with a man, police said. While Tompkins distracted the clerk, the man took several pairs of frames, according to police. 

Officers were later able to identify Tompkins as one of the suspects and obtained an arrest warrant for her. She was arrested on April 6 and later released on $1,000 non-surety bond. 

She is scheduled to appear at Manchester Superior Court on April 18.
