Police Watch [8/21 – 8/27]

Police do not release the names of those 17 years old and younger because they are protected as juveniles or youthful offenders. The Post does not publish the names of those arrested in domestic violence incidents to protect the identities of the victims. The following are this week’s arrests:


Matthew White, 19, of Stamford, N.Y. was arrested Aug. 18 and charged with larceny and carrying weapons in a motor vehicle. Police observed the accused’s vehicle travelling down Post Road, allegedly matching its registration to a vehicle that had been stolen from Norwalk earlier that day. During a felony motor vehicle stop, police allegedly discovered a BB gun belonging to the accused. White was unable to post his $5,000 bond and was due in court Aug. 19.

Nunez had been charged with tresspassing in March and did not reply to her court summance. Upon observing her at a town park near South Water Street, officers placed her under arrest.  While verfiying Nunez’s warrant, officers also discovered an additional warrant from Norwalk for possession of marijuana  She chose not to pay her bond and remained in custody until her Aug. 19 arraignment at the Stamford Superior Court.

Daniel J. Miller, 19, of Carmel, N.Y. turned himself in at police headquarters Aug. 21 on an active warrant for criminal mischief and threatening.

William Nelson, 22, of 55 Bowman Drive was arrested Aug. 24  and charged with two counts of burglary, possession of burglar’s tools and larceny.
