Two employees of Equinox gym in Darien have been charged with stealing
from customers by using credit card information to buy $1,621 worth of
clothes at Equinox gyms in Darien and Greenwich.

Darien police gave this account of the matter:

Both Katlyne Lature, 26, and Monefa Hamilton, 23, both of 19 Wardwell
St., Stamford, worked at Equinox. Management of the company told
police on Dec. 11 that the two had used a member's credit card
information to buy the clothing.

Lature obtained the member's credit card infomration, recorded the
numbers and provided them to Hamilton, who then used it to buy the
clothing in seven purchases between Nov. 27 and Dec. 6.

When confronted, both Hamilton and Lature admitted to the theft.
Police later applied for arrest warrants and on Friday both women
turned themselves in at police headquarters and were arrested. Each
was released on a written promise to appear March 4 in state Superior
Court in Stamford.
