A woman is facing charges for her alleged role in stealing a sports car valued at over $200,000 from a Connecticut home.

In Fairfield County, New Canaan Police were called just after 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28, with reports that a 2020 McLaren GT sports car had been stolen from inside the garage of a home located in the northwest section of New Canaan.

Investigators were able to identify a suspect vehicle believed to be tied to the theft, which led them to 26-year-old Deasia Foster, of Newark, New Jersey, police said.

Detectives questioned Foster about the theft and later determined that she had given them false and misleading information, according to police.

An arrest warrant was issued and on Friday, Sept. 9, Foster surrendered to the New Canaan Police Department on a charge of interfering with a law enforcement officer.

Police also obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect believed to have stolen the McLaren, but did not release their name.

The department noted that the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are possible.
