WILTON — Police have arrested a 50-year-old Wilton woman in connection with the June theft of an SAT exam booklet from Wilton High School.
Laura Garbuz, of 45 Breeds Hill Place, was charged with third-degree larceny. She posted a $2,500 cash bond, and was issued a court date of Aug. 18.
According to police, the arrest stems from an incident on the morning of June 6. Police say Garbuz misrepresented herself as an exam proctor and was allowed to enter a Wilton High School classroom, where she allegedly swiped an SAT exam booklet.
A check-in person initially stopped Garbuz at the door, telling her she had to stay outside, but when that man went into the room on an unrelated issue — he later returned to find her gone — the woman went into the room and pulled off the proctor ruse, taking one of the exams from the room, police said.
The theft was discovered after the exam, when the numbered exam booklets were not collected in their proper sequential order.
Garbuz was arrested Monday in the area of Center Street and Ridgefield Road. She was later transported back to Wilton Police Headquarters, where she was processed, fingerprinted and photographed.
In the Era of The Almighty Test, such a crime cannot be tolerated.
It's so good they caught this woman two months after the fact to emphasize the point that nothing - nothing! - is more important than test security.
