A Chelsea woman pleaded not guilty on Monday to allegedly stealing a Revere fireman's wallet while he was out on a call.
Aleesha McEachern, 32, was arraigned Monday on charges including larceny over $250 and credit card fraud. She was already in custody after being arrested in July on an unrelated robbery case out of Dorchester, according to the Suffolk district attorney's office. She was ordered held on $5,000 bail for the Revere incident.
Late last month authorities released surveillance images of the woman they suspected of stealing the firefighter's wallet.
The city's fire chief had said the firefighter left his wallet out to dry after returning from battling a fire on July 7. He was out on another call when the woman entered the Central Fire Station on Broadway with two children and allegedly took the wallet while other firefighters were still upstairs after the earlier fire.
