Woman Stole Almost $800 in Electric Toothbrushes

A woman was arrested at a Target store in Orange last month while trying to leave with almost $800 worth of stolen electric toothbrushes, according to police.

Police responded to the Target store at 25 Boston Post Road at 2:15 p.m. on Jan. 29 to investigate shoplifting and store staff said a woman had taken $779.74 worth of electronic toothbrushes out of the store without paying.

The woman, identified as Marietta Hickey, 45, of Waterbury, tried to run when officers tried to stop her, but she was stopped while trying to get into a car in the parking lot, police said.

Hickey was subsequently taken into custody and charged with firth-degree larceny, conspiracy and interfering with an officer.

She was released after posting $5,000 bond and is due in court on Feb. 13.

It’s not clear from the online court records whether she has an attorney.
