Buffalo woman charged in grand larceny at Home Depot
A Buffalo woman has been charged with fourth-degree grand larceny and trespass in connection with a shoplifting incident that occurred last month at Home Depot in the town of Dunkirk.
New York State Police report Troopers responded to the store for a shoplifting complaint. An investigation revealed that Jennifer Szewczyk, 34, had walked out of the location without paying for more than $2,000 in flooring materials.
Szewczyk had since left the scene but was identified through photographs by Home Depot employees. Further investigation revealed that there was an order banning Szewczyk from all Home Depot locations due to prior incidents.
A warrant was obtained from the Dunkirk Town Court as attempts to locate Szewczyk had been unsuccessful. On May 27th, the Troopers were advised by Buffalo Police that Szewczyk was in their custody for one of their cases. Szewczyk was later turned over to the Troopers, processed at Fredonia barracks and transported to the Chautauqua County Jail.
