DARIEN, Conn. — A Stamford woman was charged with stealing more than $13,000 through a debit card return scam while working as a cashier at a Darien store, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Police told the Stamford Advocate that between October 2016 and May 2017, there were a high number of refunds to debit cards at Runner's Roost in Darien.
