POUND RIDGE, N.Y. - Pound Ridge Police have arrested a pair of shoplifters following a month-long investigation into a series of thefts at the Scott’s Corner Market.

On Thursday, the Pound Ridge Police Department announced that they have concluded a one-month investigation into a series of shoplifting incidents that led to the arrests of Pound Ridge residents Melodie Verrico, 59, and 63-year-old Theodore Winski.

According to police, they have received multiple reports of a male and female duo that had been stealing groceries and other goods from the market on Westchester Avenue. After reviewing surveillance video and in-store tapes, the police tracked down their suspects, one of whom is facing deeper trouble after claiming to be a retired officer.

Verrico and Winski are each facing multiple charges of petit larceny, while the latter is also facing one count of impersonating a police officer when he represented himself as a retired Stamford police officer.

Both Verrico and Winski were released on their own recognizance and an order was issued for them to stay away from Scott’s Corner Market by Pound Ridge Judge Ira Clair. They are due back in court on Monday, Jan. 9.
