Store detectives at the supermarket had been alerted that there were cash shortages at register where Lamanda Terry, 48, of Bridgeport had been working, so they watched her.

Terry, who lives on Fremont Street in Bridgeport, was issued a misdemeanor summons and was released on a promise to appear Oct. 14 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
