FARMINGTON — A local woman was charged Monday with stealing a toolbox and tools from a garage on Knowlton Corner Road and selling them at a downtown pawnshop.

Officer Darin Gilbert arrested Kira A. Simot, 27, of Farmington on charges of burglary, theft and violation of conditions of release, Farmington police secretary Bonnie Pomeroy said. Simot was out of jail on bail on unrelated charges.

The owner of the toolbox and tools saw them at the shop and recognized them, Pomeroy said. The pawnshop owner did not know the items were stolen and immediately removed them from display, she said.
