Orange police responded to a shoplifting complaint at Kohl’s, 250 Bull Hill Lane, Jan. 2 at 8:09 p.m. at which the suspect was in custody in the security office.
According to the report, Sky Winwood, 27, of 323 Washington Ave., West Haven, was accused of taking $366 worth of clothing and perfume into the fitting room where she allegedly removed all the sales tags and then hid the items in a baby stroller carrying her son.
Police learned that Winwood then left the store without attempting to pay for any of the merchandise and was stopped by store security personnel.
Winwood was detained for police and subsequently taken into custody and charged with sixth-degree larceny and risk of injury to a minor.
While officers were handling Sky Winwood’s shoplifting incident, they learned that her twin sister, Free Winwood, same age and address, was in the store attempting to get a refund for a pair of jeans that she hadn’t paid for.
Police found Free at the customer service desk just after receiving the refund.
She reportedly admitted that she had stolen the jeans, and was taken into custody and charged with sixth-degree larceny.
The sisters were released on promises to appear in court Jan. 16.
