Theft from Burberry at the Premium Outlets leads to arrest

Brenda Correa-Guzman
Queens, NY
This evening, undercover Wrentham Police Officer Ed Fitzgerald arrested Correa-Guzman for stealing more than $1800.00 worth of merchandise from the Burberry store at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets.  The officer observed Correa-Guzman holding a lined 'booster bag' while the man she was with stuffed the bag with merchandise. 

The classic 'booster bags' police are seeing at the Premium Outlets are shopping bags lined with a metallic tape.  These bags are made by thieves to defeat the magnetic door alarms that are triggered by tagged merchandise.

The undercover officer was able to apprehend Correa-Guzman but the male suspect fled from the scene.  Wrentham Officers from both the day shift (8am-4pm) and the incoming evening shift (4pm-12am) searched the mall area, but were unable to find the man.  It is believed the two came from New York with the intent to steal from the outlet mall.

Correa-Guzman was taken to the police station where she was booked and processed.  ICE was contacted as well.  Correa-Guzman was released on personal recognizance and must appear at the Wrentham District Court in the morning.
