Real Life Somerville Police Stories: (Larceny)Arrest

On the afternoon of October 18, 2022, I, Officer Ferrara, was in full uniform working for the Somerville Police Department, assigned to marked unit East-1. At approximately 2:52 P.M, I was dispatched to 460 Assembly Row, (Ralph Lauren) for a report of a past larceny. Officer Nick Moreira, East-2, responded as back up.

Upon arrival, I spoke with Ms. XXXX the store manager and Mr. XXXX the regional manager. Ms. XXXX stated that one of their employees, who was later identified as Ms. Kyanna Halliday, came to her today and admitted to making fraudulent returns at the store. Mr. XXXX stated that Ms. Halliday told him that she has been making fraudulent returns since May 12, 2022. Ms. Halliday stated that she would reprint the receipt and scan it to the return. Once the return would pop up on the computer, Ms. Halliday would select products for the returns and put a reason down for the return in the computer.

Ms. Halliday would then change the customers card on file for the return and put the money on her Debit cards, Apple Pay, and Cash cards. She would then transfer the money to her bank account. Ms. Halliday stated to Mr. XXXX that her first transaction was on May 12, 2022 and her final transaction was on October 12, 2022. Mr. XXXX stated that Ms. Halliday has made 54 fraudulent return transactions totaling $24,299.16 (find transactions attached). Ms. Halliday wrote a Voluntary Statement, per Ralph Lauren going into detail about what she did and provided it to Ms. XXXX and Mr. XXXX. Ms. Halliday’s statement will be attached to this report.

I placed Ms. Halliday under arrest for 266/30, Larceny over $1,200. She was then transported to Somerville Police Headquarters, by Ofc. Hartsgrove, in marked unit 200, where she was booked by the shift commander, Lt. G. Rymill, in the usual manner.

Respectfully submitted,

Officer Ferrara #366
Somerville Police Department
