WARWICK, RI — A Cumberland woman turned herself in at Warwick Police Headquarters, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, Aug. 1 on an arrest warrant for larceny after Smart Tan employees reported she had taken cash from a register while picking up her last check.

According to Warwick Police, Emma Campbell, 30, of 28 Main St., Cumberland, RI, turned herself in at police headquarters after they obtained a warrant for her arrest on a larceny charge stemming from a report from her former fellow employees and boss at Smart Tan, 1276 Bald Hill Road, July 28 at about 1:38 p.m.

Officer Brian Holleran reported at the time that the salon’s employee told police that Campbell and another former employee had entered the store to pick up their final checks. During the visit, Campbell entered the space behind the counter to collect her belonging. While there, Campbell took $91 from the cash register. When the employee asked if she had permission to do that, Campbell stated that she did.

The employee called the salon’s owner to verify the claim, and the man instructed her to call the Warwick Police, according to the report.

Warwick Police obtained an arrest warrant for Campbell charging her with larceny on July 27, according to a report by Det. Matthew Smith. Campbell turned herself in on the warrant Aug. 1, according to Smith’s report.

Campbell was arrested, fingerprinted and photographed and placed in a temporary holding cell, then released with a summons to answer the charge in Third District Court Aug. 20.

Update, Aug. 26, 11:10 a.m.: At her arraignment in Third District Court, Campbell pleaded not guilty and waived her right to a trial by jury before Judge Walter Gorman, who referred the case to the state public defender’s office, imposed a no-trespassing order, and released Campbell on personal recognizance until a pretrial hearing scheduled for Sept. 4.
