At about 6 p.m., Dartmouth police responded to Walmart, at 506 State Road, for a report of two suspicious women inside of the store. Walmart security associates reported that these women were allegedly responsible for stealing three computers and other electronics from earlier that day. It was reported the alleged perpetrators had exited the store with the stolen merchandise. The women then fled in a gold colored Buick SUV. Walmart valued the stolen property at nearly $3,000.
While officers were responding to Walmart, store security reported that the women exited the store and left the area in the same vehicle, described as a Buick Rendezvous.
Officers located and stopped this vehicle as it was traveling on Old Westport Road. The operator of the vehicle was identified as Jennifer L. Morgan, 40, from Berlin, N.H., and her passenger as Paizli Commander, 19, from Gorham, N.H.
Police discovered several new items inside of the vehicle with Walmart price tags still attached. A razor knife and scissors were found inside of Morgan’s pocketbook. Both female subjects were identified by Walmart security as the alleged thieves. Morgan and Paizli were arrested without incident.
Both Morgan and Paizli were scheduled to be arraigned Monday at New Bedford Third District Court, each charged with larceny of more than $250.
Officer Justin Fonseca is the lead investigator on the case, assisted by Officer Tony Vincent.
