Law serves sandwich thief with a day of meals in jail

A 2005 theft of a $3.49 ham sandwich from Tops has come back to bite a 33-year-old woman who was sentenced to one day in County Jail on Wednesday.

Carrie Larock, 33, of 223 Turin Road, was sentenced by City Court Judge Daniel C. Wilson to one day in jail on a charge of petty larceny.

Authorities said at 5:12 p.m. May 24, 2005, Larock stole a $3.49 submarine sandwich from Tops Market on Erie Boulevard West. Store employees said Larock snatched the sandwich from the carry-out counter and hid it in her purse, then walked out of the store.

A warrant was issued for her arrest in July 2005, and law enforcers finally caught up with her on Tuesday.

¿ Bail was set at $2,500 cash bail or bond in Marcy Town Court for Steven J. Morrison, 22, of 401 Ann St., charged with third-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child. After appearing in City Court on Wednesday, his case was adjourned to May 18.
