A Bridgeport woman was charged Wednesday with trying to steal Santa elf hats from Walgreen's, 740 Villa Ave.

Erendira Ochoa, 29, was charged with sixth-degree larceny after she allegedly tried to conceal the three elf hats in a plastic bag about 1:20 p.m. and then attempted to leave the store without paying. She was stopped by Walgreen's personnel.

Ochoa was released on a written promise to appear Dec. 29 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
