Jessie Leburn, 80, of East Hills Drive, New Canaan, was charged with sixth-degree larceny for allegedly attempting to steal a pair of reading glasses from Walgreens Pharmacy on Pine Street, according to New Canaan Police Lt. Jason Ferraro.
The eyewear, valued at $34.99, was found in her back rear pocket after she left the store, according to Ferraro. A store employee told police they saw Leburn enter a store restroom with the glasses on and exit the store a short time after, Ferraro said.
She was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Norwalk Oct. 1, according to Ferraro.
