Police make arrest in theft of SAT exam
Laura M. Garbuz, 50, of 45 Breeds Hill Place, accused of stealing an SAT exam from Wilton High School on June 6, the day of the exam, was arrested by police on Aug. 3 at 9:04 a.m.
Garbuz had an active arrest warrant for third-degree larceny after being accused of stealing the exam. When the theft was reported, police identified a suspect caught on surveillance video in the school.
According to an earlier police report, a woman walked into a classroom where the test was being given and spoke with the man in charge. He was called away and asked her to wait in the lobby.
She then told one of the proctors that she herself was a proctor and needed a test booklet, which she was given. She then left the building.
The theft was not discovered until the actual proctor told her colleague they would be one booklet short — since they had given it to the woman — and it was only then discovered the woman was not a proctor at all.
Garbuz was found driving Monday morning on Route 7 and was taken into custody in the area of Center Street and Ridgefield Road.
She was brought to police headquarters, processed, fingerprinted and photographed.
She was assessed a cash bond of $2,500, which she posted.
Garbuz was released and is scheduled to appear at Norwalk Superior Court on Aug. 14.
