Police on Nov. 11 arrested a 31-year-old Hartford man by warrant and charged him with two counts of third-degree identity theft and four counts of conspiracy to commit third-degree identity theft.
At about 2:30 a.m. that Saturday, officers were notified by the New Britain Police Department that they had the man in custody on New Canaan’s warrant, officials said. It stemmed from an ID theft investigation in 2021, according to a police report.
Under state law, a person commits identity theft “when such person knowingly uses personal identifying information of another person to obtain or attempt to obtain money, credit, goods, services, property or medical information without the consent of such other person.”
According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, the same man had been charged in 2018 with criminal impersonation (East Windsor Police).
He was held on $50,000 bond and scheduled to appear Nov. 13 in state Superior Court. Court records show that he has not yet pleaded to the new charges.
