PLYMOUTH - A Terryville woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with a felony for allegedly stealing someone’s food stamp card.

Cherish Shorey, 28, of 7 Fall Mountain Road, faces charges of second-degree larceny and disorderly conduct.

According to the arrest warrant, Shorey was involved in a domestic violence incident on Feb. 11, 2018, at her home. During the incident, the warrant said, she grabbed a $20 bill from someone who resides in the home.

According to the warrant, Shorey had grabbed a resident’s food stamp card and refused to give it back. On the way out of the home, the warrant continued, she allegedly pushed a man who had grabbed her shirt and tried to stop her.

When contacted by police, the warrant said, Shorey admitted to stealing from the victim - who has not been identified because of the state’s domestic violence laws.

It is not clear why Shorey was not charged until Wednesday. She is being held on $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on July 24.
