On Sunday, Feb 11 a man turned himself into Greenwich Police for an outstanding arrest warrant stemming back to an incident at Vilebrequin, 200 Greenwich Ave on December 8, 2017.
According to Lieutenant Slusarz, a customer had purchased a swim suit for $202.07 from David Cousart who was an employee at Vilebrequin.
After the swim suit was purchased, Mr. Cousart allegedly entered the swimsuit as a return for $202.07.
The scam was exposed when the real customer returned to the store to return the bathing suit.
“The guy buys it, goes to return it, and was informed that the bathing suit had been returned 30 minutes prior to that,” Slusarz said.
Slusarz said that initially Mr. Cousart denied being involved in a Larceny. But after Saks Fifth Avenue shared video surveillance incriminating Mr. Cousart, an arrest warrant was issued.
Mr. Cousart, 27, of 18 Roosevelt Square in Mount Vernon, NY was charged with Larceny 6 and False Statement.
He was assigned a court date in Stamford Superior Court on Feb 26, 2018 and was released on $500 bond.
