GLASTONBURY — For the second time, Glastonbury police have charge a woman with huffing cans of computer cleaner.

On Saturday, police said, Korey Yorkin, 44, of Madison Road, took five cans of “Dust Destroyer” that she did not pay for into the bathroom at the Staples store on Putnam Boulevard, huffed the contents of the cans and passed out. When she came to, she was combative with store staff, police said.

Yorkin was arrested after a similar incident at a Burger King restaurant in Glastonbury Nov. 19, police said.

She was released on $2,500 bail after the latest incident.

Inhaling the contests of the cans, Glastonbury police Agent James Kennedy said, gives a temporary euphoria and incapacitates those who inhale it for a short period of time.
