Two arrested after Ugg boots stolen from Sensible Shoe

RUTLAND — Vermont State Police have made two arrests in a retail theft that occurred on Tuesday, Dec. 29 at Sensible Shoe in Rutland Town. Store owners called Vermont State Police around 2 p.m. on Tuesday and reported that an unknown male and female entered their store, distracted a store clerk, and stolen two pairs of Ugg brand boots.

Investigation revealed that the couple were seen at Super Shoe on Rte. 4 earlier in the day inquiring about Ugg brand boots and sent down the road to Sensible Shoe.

Sensible Shoe employees reported to state police that in-store cameras captured the female, later identified as Candace Alberti, age 33 of Rutland City, walking out of the store and getting into a black sedan driven by the male.

Gregory Fineberg, owner of Sensible Shoe, told state police that he attempted to stop the vehicle and was struck, but uninjured, by the driver’s side mirror as the vehicle sped out of the parking lot.

Sensible Shoe posted still images of the in-store video to a forum on Facebook assisting State Police investigators with multiple tips in identifying the suspects. The male was subsequently identified as Paul Voight, age 47 of Brandon. The investigation continues with more charges pending.

Voight has been cited to appear in Rutland Superior Court on Feb. 22 for retail theft.  Alberti has been cited to appear Feb. 29 for retail theft. The boots have not yet been recovered.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the police at 802-773-9101.  Information can also be submitted anonymously  at vtips.info or  text “CRIMES” (274637) to Keyword: VTIPS.
