Arrest warrant issued for Conn. woman in theft of car, $3,000 from Pittsfield man
PITTSFIELD -- Police are looking for the Connecticut woman who allegedly stole a car and $3,000 from a man who let her stay overnight at his house.
An arrest warrant was issued this week for Becky Ziegler, 35, of Berlin, Conn., on charges of felony larceny of a motor vehicle and larceny over $250. Police say she swiped a 2013 Hyundai Elantra and the cash from a 51-year-old Pittsfield man.
According to Pittsfield Police, the man is an attendant at the Mardi Gras Gentlemen’s Club in Springfield and became acquainted with Ziegler who also had worked there. On March 31, he let her spend the night at his house and loaned his car the next day so she could drive to a court hearing in Connecticut. She never returned. His calls to her all went to voicemail, the man told police.
On April 7, the man returned home to find his front door unlocked and about $3,000 in cash missing. Clothes the woman left behind were gone too, police said.
Investigators believe Ziegler’s no longer in the area. Two days before the break-in, Shrewsbury Police ran a check on the license plate belonging to the man’s car, according to a police probable cause report.
Ziegler also is charged for larceny of a GPS and various tools from the car, according to court records.
