Taste for shrimp lands Stamford woman in hot water
STAMFORD — A city woman with a record for not showing up at court got into hot water when she tried to steal $150 worth of shrimp from a West Side supermarket Wednesday morning, police said.
Sgt. Robert Shawinsky said police were called to the Stop & Shop at 9:26 a.m. Wednesday a the report of a pregnant woman walking out the door without paying for a shopping cart full of shrimp. The store identified the woman as a former employee named Tatiana Bojka, 38, of Woodland Place.
When police went to her home, they found Bojka, who serves coffee at the Dunkin Donuts at the Stamford Train Station, was found near her home with the bags of melting shrimp and arrested her, Shawinsky said. When they were booking her, they discovered that she also had eight arrest warrants for not showing up at the New Haven courthouse to answer larceny, assault and robbery charges from 2017 and 2018.
After arresting Bojka for sixth-degree larceny, police put a $10,000 court-appearance bond on each of her files and held her overnight for arraignment at the Stamford courthouse Thursday afternoon.
