New Canaan police arrest New Haven man
New Canaan police arrested a 27-year-old New Haven man by warrant last week for stealing credit cards from a vehicle parked on Main Street, according to police.
Trevor Dixon, of 194 Henry St., New Haven was arrested and charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny, four counts of credit card theft and 10 counts of illegal use of a credit card, according to police.
The original incident occurred on Nov. 6 when the 55-year-old victim reported the theft from her vehicle sometime the previous night, according to police.
The victim became aware of the theft after being contacted by her bank about a sudden burst in charges to her debit card, according to New Canaan Police Sgt. Carol Ogrinc. She then went out to her vehicle and found her debit card and portable GPS system missing, and estimated her car was broken into sometime between the evening of Nov. 5 and 9:30 a.m. Nov. 6, according to police.
Police were able to zero in on Dixon by obtaining video surveillance footage after the card was used at an Exxon Mobil gas station on the Merritt Parkway, according to police. In total, charges from the stolen cards used in Meriden and Derby totaled approximately $1,154, according to police.
Dixon was held on $45,000, and is scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Norwalk on Jan. 22, according to police.
