Kathryn M. Stine, 31, of Nutmeg Lane, was charged Sunday night with stealing from her grandmother.
Stine took $600 from her grandmother, police said, although the older woman had initially thought that the amount stolen was about $180, police said.
The grandmother said Stine had called her from Bridgeport, looking for a ride home. While she arrived home, police said Stine began to slam doors, throw furniture and swear.
Stine, who was charged with fifth-degree larceny and breach of peace, was released on a promise to have appeared Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
