Woman adds to her pile of documents
A Revere woman was charged with stealing copies of some of her criminal records out of East Boston District Court this week, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Nicole DiFazi, 24, allegedly entered the clerk's office Monday and asked for copies of some of the records in her criminal file. The DA's office says:
Clerk's office staff told Boston Police that Difazi was rude and insulting from the moment she walked in the door and requested copies of paperwork related to her past offenses. Difazi was told that she could review the records but that there would be a fee for copying them. Instead, investigators say, Difazi simply left the Meridian Street courthouse with them.
Court employees notified Boston Police, who soon spotted her in Maverick Square carrying what appeared to be court records. Officers brought her back to the courthouse, where court officers took custody of the paperwork and police placed her under arrest. During a search following that arrest, officers recovered a plastic bag containing an off-white rock-like substance believed to be crack cocaine.
So her criminal file will soon have even more documents in it. The DA's office reports she was arraigned on charges of larceny and possession of a Class B substance; her bail was set at $5,000.
