    An Ellington, Connecticut, woman imprisoned for about 40 months for stealing $1.7 million from a law firm where she worked as a paralegal has been arrested on a charge of stealing from a Glastonbury hair salon where she was a receptionist.

    The Hartford Courant reports that Glastonbury police charged Patricia Baddeley Meehan with third-degree larceny earlier this month. She was released on $75,000 bail.

    The arrest warrant says the 49-year-old Meehan stole as much as $40,000 in cash from September 2013 until she was fired a year later. She's also accused of stealing tips.

    Meehan doesn't have a listed phone number and it wasn't known if she's represented by a lawyer.

    Prosecutors have asked a judge to revoke her supervised release and put her back in jail due to the new arrest.
