Woman charged with theft
She allegedly stole underwear
NASHUA – When Hudson police charged Nashua resident Kristen Antonetty with theft Sunday for allegedly trying to steal underwear from Walmart, they also arrested her on an outstanding warrant for her alleged failure to appear in court on several other offenses.
While Antonetty, 30, of 12 Patten Court, was initially jailed without bail, a Hillsborough County Superior Court-South judge promptly vacated the warrant, and on Tuesday, agreed to release Antonetty on personal recognizance bail as her cases move forward in court.
According to her bail order, Antonetty must comply with the terms of mental health court, sign a waiver of extradition, consume no alcohol or illegal drugs, and continue to live at her current address.
The set of charges on which Antonetty allegedly failed to appear in court stem from her arrest in Nashua on Dec. 31, according to the case file.
The charges include one felony count of heroin possession, along with three counts of criminal mischief and one count of criminal trespass, all misdemeanors.
Police allege in reports that Antonetty unlawfully entered another person’s residence in Nashua, then caused damage to various items by allegedly throwing a vase against a wall, causing it to shatter, breaking a wooden stair railing in two by kicking it, and smashing a TV screen by throwing a picture frame at it.
As for Sunday’s arrest, Hudson police said officers responded to Walmart, 254 Lowell Road, after store security called to report a woman attempted to steal several pairs of underwear, and was allegedly being uncooperative with security personnel.
After speaking with the suspect, whom they identified as Antonetty, police took her into custody on one count of theft, a misdemeanor, and subsequently charged her on the outstanding warrant.
Antonetty was represented at Tuesday’s hearing by Derry-based attorney Philip Kalil, who promptly filed two motions with the court.
One states that Antonetty “objects to the introduction of any drug analysis certificates,” and “requests the presence of the drug analyst” if the case goes to trial.
Secondly, Antonetty asks the court “to preserve … any and all evidence” in the court’s control, “including any video or audio tapes and any other physical evidence,” according to the motion.
Antonetty is next scheduled to appear in court on March 21, for a pre-trial conference.
