Officers arrested a Hamden man working at Westport’s Bridgewater Associates, one of the world’s largest hedge funds, for first-degree E-crime and the theft of computer services, police said today.
Sankaranarayan Subramanian, 24, was arrested Thursday based on an investigation that began in November into the theft of confidential Bridgewater IT documents from the company’s headquarters at 1 Glendinning Place.
According to Lt. David Farrell, Subramanian was a consultant working on site when Bridgewater IT security determined that Subramanian had emailed himself, on several occasions, multiple confidential Bridgewater IT documents from his Bridgewater account to his personal account without authorization.
“Subramanian intentionally and without authorization made copies, in the form of print and email data transfer, of data residing in the Bridgewater Associates computer system and by taking data intended for the use by that computer system,” Farrell said.
Detectives with a warrant arrested Subramanian Thursday at his Hamden address without incident. Transported to Westport Police headquarters, he was released after posting a $100,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, April 3.
