Home health care worker accused of taking jewelry from Shelton client

December 4, 2018

SHELTON — A home health care worker faces a larceny charge after she was accused of taking jewelry from a client’s home in the city, police said Tuesday.

Kelly Savage, 39, of Southington, was charged with second degree larceny. The arrest came after a complaint to Shelton police in late November, according to Detective Christopher Nugent.

“The complainant’s mother was being assisted daily by home health care workers,” he said. “Family members noticed that several pieces of significant jewelry were missing from their mother’s room. Police investigated the incident and were able to recover and link Savage to the missing jewelry.”

Savage was stopped by police in Groton on Tueday and was turned over to Shelton police on her outstanding warrant. Savage also had two outstanding arrest warrants for failure to appear, Nugent said.

Nugent said Savage’s bail on the larceny charge was set at $75,000, but with her additional warrants, her total bail was set at $87,000.
