SUMMARY OF INCIDENT:

On 11/11/18, the VSP Derby Barracks received a complaint from Thompson’s Redemption in Derby.   It was alleged there were ongoing issues with a female pumping significantly more gas than had been pre-paid for, and then driving away.

 

Later that day, Troopers were involved in a high-speed pursuit with a reckless operator in a white Dodge Avenger, who unsuccessfully attempted to elude them, crashed, and was identified as Anna Roy.  She was placed under arrest and a press release was issued, including mug shot.

 

Troopers were then advised by Thompson’s staff that their suspect and vehicle matched the description of Roy and the white Avenger.  A subsequent review of camera footage revealed that on 11/10/18, and prior to the pursuit on 11/11/18, Roy was the one who had committed the gas thefts.

 

Roy has already been in court for the vehicle offenses, and will be due in court on 1/15/19 to answer to the additional charges.
