SOUTH WINDSOR — South Windsor Police Department made several arrests over the weekend, including two siblings caught attempting to steal items from a local Target store and a resident who breached the peace at a communal gazebo.

On the afternoon of Friday, July 5 at 4 p.m., officers of the SWPD, alongside Loss Prevention Personnel at Target (125 Buckland Hills Drive), arrested Riley A. Thayer, 18, of Lebanon, and Brianna E. Thayer, 24, of Windham.

The siblings were observed concealing merchandise with the intention of theft.

Upon noticing police presence outside the store, they began to discard the concealed items before passing the final point of purchase.

Both were issued misdemeanor summonses and are due to appear in Manchester Superior Court on Wednesday, July 24 at 9 a.m.

Later that evening at 8:03 p.m., police were called to 50 Elm Street after residents reported being subjected to unruly behavior by Wayne N. Shaw, 70, of South Windsor. Shaw allegedly yelled at several residents using obscene language, which caused annoyance and alarm among those gathered at the gazebo.

Shaw received a misdemeanor summons for his actions and is also scheduled to appear in Manchester Superior Court on July 24 at 9 a.m.

The following morning, on Saturday, July 6 at 6:20 a.m., Krista S. Johnson, 52, also of South Windsor, was arrested for violating a protective order during a suspected domestic violence incident on Amato Drive.
