NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - Police have rescued a shoplifting suspect from the Quinebaug River in Lisbon and charged her with larceny.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1IsGJdQ ) that State Police said they received a call at 11:35 a.m. Tuesday of a shoplifter at Wal-Mart at Lisbon Landing.

Police say Melissa Latronica tried to escape by running along the top of an embankment. She fell into the river and was submerged when troopers pulled her out. She was treated at the scene and taken to the William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich.

The 30-year-old Latronica of Cromwell was released on a $1,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear Jan. 20 in Norwich Superior Court.

She does not have a listed phone number and it was not known if she’s represented by a lawyer.
