Woman arrested after ditching GPS monitoring device

A 55-year-old Shrewsbury woman who already has a history of getting on the wrong side of the law is in more trouble after she allegedly removed a GPS monitoring device.

CK police said the woman had been ordered to wear the device as part of a conditional sentence order that she received on July 11, 2022.

Some of the other conditions of her sentence required her to stay in her residence at all times, to not purchase any alcohol, and to not possess any alcohol or other intoxicating substances.

Officers showed up at her home after they got an alert from the GPS monitoring company shortly before 5 p.m. Monday saying that the device she was supposed to be wearing had been tampered with.

When police found the woman, she was at her residence in Shrewsbury, but she was intoxicated and was no longer wearing the device.

She was arrested and taken to police headquarters where she was set to be held pending a bail hearing.
