Officers arrested a Norwalk man described as a known criminal on burglary and larceny charges involving an incident at a Weston Road address in October, police said today.
Ernest Bailey, 49, was arrested Monday at the Norwalk Police Department where he was already in custody for a different crime. He had his bond set at $50,000 and was released back into the custody of the court, according to Lt. David Farrell.
The charges date back to October when the victim said she was unable to locate her purse, and her bank advised her of fraudulent activity on her account, Farrell said.
“The officer also followed up with People’s Bank in Stamford and learned that the suspect withdrew $300 on the victim’s account,” Farrell said. “The People’s Bank teller recognized the male as Ernest Bailey, a known criminal.”
Upon his arrest and being processed, Bailey was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree larceny, credit card theft and related conspiracy charges. He also admitted to conspiring with another individual on the crimes, Farrell said.
