Stratford woman charged with witness tampering in Stamford

July 31, 2018

STAMFORD — Police say a Stratford woman has been charged with witness tampering after telling someone not to cooperate with authorities.

Sgt. Sean Boeger said the case involves the girlfriend of a Stratford man charged in May with stealing and cashing checks from his Stamford employer.

Timothy Calzone, 29, was charged with conspiracy and criminal attempt at fourth-degree larceny. He was accused of stealing several business checks and cashing them.

Boeger said investigators found an acquaintance of Calzone who cashed the checks. Boeger said that person recorded phone conversation with Calzone’s girlfriend, Audrienne Kalm.

Boeger said the conversation revealed Kalm, 27, coaching the witness what to tell police.

“Don’t say anything,” Kalm told the witness, according to Boeger. “The reason they are calling you is because they don’t have anything. You did not know the checks were stolen and you still don’t know that.”

In addition to witness tampering, Kalm was charged with three counts of forgery and single counts of conspiracy to commit forgery and interfering with police. She was released after posting a $35,000 court appearance bond.
