NORWALK — Two Brooklyn, NY residents accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of perfume from a store in the city were arrested using a tracking device on Tuesday, police say.

Kerina Semervil, 24, and Davon Sejourne, 23, were each charged with third-degree robbery after the couple allegedly raided the Ulta Beauty store at 650 Main Ave. shortly after 1 p.m. on January 25.

According to Sgt. Cosmetics store worker Sofia Gulino watched the duo take perfumes from the shelves, place them in bags and leave without paying. At least one of the items stolen from the store contained a tracking device.


The tracking device started ringing in Trumbull, a town about 15 miles from the store. Gulino said the pair were later located and detained by officers from the Trumbull Police Department.

Gulino said Norwalk officers then took custody of the suspects and returned with them to Norwalk Police Headquarters without incident. The two were processed and held on $10,000 bail.

After performing a check of their inventory, store employees determined that about 27 perfumes were stolen, Gulino said. The stolen items, which have since been returned to the store, are worth a total of $3,435.

The alleged theft is the latest in a string of shoplifting incidents targeting Ultra Beauty locations in Connecticut. In October, the state police asked the public to help identify three men who stole $7,500 worth of items from a store in Lisbon. Last month, three people were arrested after around $7,000 worth of items were stolen from a location in Westport.
