Police: Woman stole used couple’s car without permission

MONROE, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman has been charged with stealing tools from a home and using the homeowners’ car without permission while they were on a nine-day vacation.

The Connecticut Post reports that the couple left their Monroe home and dog in the care of a 26-year-old woman they met through a local animal hospital.

Police say that woman allowed 37-year-old Jennifer Spezzano, of Waterbury, stay in the home and use the couple’s car.

Police charged Spezzano with third-degree larceny, conspiracy and using a vehicle without permission. She was released after posting $25,000 bond.

Police said they later determined that Spezzano had sold the tools to pawn shops.
