Police report they arrested Franklin Reyes, 25, of Danbury on a warrant on the morning of March 8, lodging charges of second-degree identity theft and second-degree larceny.
The charges stem from a 2014 incident in which Reyes allegedly fraudulently used the personal information of a Newtown resident to obtain a store credit card at an area furniture store, police said. About $3,000 worth of goods were then fraudulently billed to the victim of the crime, police said.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy accepted the final report of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission on Friday, somberly and profusely thanking its 15 members while offering no support for further restrictions on firearms and ammunition.
The commission’s findings and recommendations, including a call for significant investments in an “underfunded and fragmented behavioral health system,” comes as the legislature considers deep budget cuts proposed by Malloy.
Over the course of its last two meetings on February 25 and March 2, the Board of Finance continued its review of the municipal and school district budget proposals, and continued its attempts to define possible additional areas of taxpayer savings.
