NEW CANAAN — A 65-year-old West Haven man was charged with forgery and larceny after turning himself to New Canaan police July 21, following a warrant for his arrest.
New Canaan police looked into a complaint filed March 18 by a Forest Street business that reported a missing check that had been cashed for $20,000. Upon investigating the matter, police found Hugh Jones had cashed the check at a Chase bank in Bridgeport. An arrest warrant was then issued for Jones.
Jones posted $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 2.
