Police on Friday arrested a woman suspected of accepting stolen beer from a delivery truck driven by the man who fatally shot eight co-workers at a Connecticut beer distributor.

Officers arrested Christy Quail, 33, of Enfield, after receiving a videotape showing her accepting beer from a truck driven by Omar Thornton, East Windsor police dispatcher Sharon Bourke said.

Quail was charged with sixth-degree larceny and was release on bond. Her arraignment was set for Aug. 17.

Quail did not immediately respond to a call for comment.

Thornton killed eight people, then himself, on Tuesday at Hartford Distributors in Manchester after being confronted with evidence he had stolen beer and being forced to resign. He told police in a 911 call that he wanted to avenge racial discrimination, allegations that company officials denied.

In a separate incident, police arrested a man at a New Haven management company after he mentioned the shooting spree and said he understood the killer's mindset.

Francis Laskowski, 58, of Derby, was charged with breach of peace Wednesday after making the comments while working at Fusco Management Co.

Laskowski told The Associated Press on Friday that his comments were blown out of proportion. He called his arrest "ridiculous" and said didn't make any threats.

Laskowski posted bail. He is due in court on Tuesday.
