Felony ID Theft Charge for 34-Year-Old Man


New Canaan Police on April 13 arrested a 34-year-old Brooklyn man by warrant and charged him with second-degree identity theft—a felony offense—as well as fourth-degree larceny, fifth-degree larceny and four counts of sixth-degree larceny.

The charges stem from an ID theft investigation following a complaint lodged with police five years ago, officials said.

It’s unclear what the man is accused of doing, how he stole someone’s identity, how old the victim is or how much money was taken. Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree identity theft if “the value of the money, credit, goods, services or property obtained exceeds five thousand dollars,” or if the victim “is sixty years of age or older,” among other reasons.

Police took custody of the man on April 13 and transported him to headquarters for processing. The man was released on $20,000 bond and scheduled to appear April 27 in state Superior Court.
