FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police arrested two sisters and charged with them with multiple counts of larceny, after they tried to sell Genzyme equipment on ebay.
Arrested on January 17 were Deborah Walsh, 52, of Marlborough and Alaina Wood, 57, of Whitinsville. Both wre charged with multiple counts of larceny over $250.
In December, a Genzyme employee realized a $6,000 piece of equipment was missing from the warehouse.
The employee went on eBay and found the equipment being sold by “WiniBigelow2012.”
According to Framingham Police, the employee recognized the name as Walsh’s mother because she had previously purchased a purse from Bigelow’s eBay page.
Walsh was a former warehouse employee at Genzyme in Framingham.
Police discovered the return address for the items on eBay was 670 Linwood Avenue in Whitinsville, where Bigelow lives with her and Walsh’s mother. After receiving a search warrant, police discovered Genzyme equipment still in marked boxes at the house.
In total, the items listed on eBay were more than $25,000.
EBay records showed WiniBigelow2012 has sold more than 150 items.
At their arraignment earlier this week, Judge Jennifer Stark released both with no bail.
