    Police: Woman Arrested Twice in 4 Hours for Stealing

    A Massachusetts woman was arrested, not once, but twice on Thursday, in connection to two separate incidents in Boston, according to police.

    Angelina Damelio, 33, of Malden, is scheduled to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court on Friday on charges of attempted larceny.

    Police said officers were walking out of roll call at the Boston Police District A-1 Station on New Sudbury Street at about 4:30 p.m., when Damelio was seen reaching her hand through a safety glass and grabbing the purse belonging to the front desk clerk.

    Damelio attempted to pull the purse towards her and through the hole in the partition before she was confronted by officers. At that point, police said she caused a disturbance in the lobby while attempting to leave.

    Damelio was then placed under arrest.

    Police said about three hours earlier, Damelio had been arrested and charged with shoplifting in Boston Municipal Court after allegedly stealing multiple items from a CVS on Hanover Street in the city's North End.

    When a CVS employee confronted her, Damelio allegedly began hitting him with her purse. She then took more items and fled the store.

    After reviewing surveillance video, police patrolling the area found Damelio nearby and arrested her.

    It's unclear if she has an attorney.
