Alleged identity thief turns himself in
Edwin M. McCray, 27, of Springfield, Mass., turned himself in to Wilton police on Dec. 14, on charges of third-degree forgery and third-degree larceny stemming from a Sept. 24 residential mail theft incident in Wilton.
McCray is said to have forged information on a check he stole from a mailbox on Bossy Lane to defraud a victim of $5,000. He was caught on video depositing the check into his personal bank account in Springfield. McCray was released on $25,000 bond and given a Dec. 26 court date at Norwalk Superior Court.
Weapon in vehicle
Craig Fordon, 47, of Norwalk, was arrested Dec. 17, and charged with illegal possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle, as well as failure to drive in the proper lane, after Wilton police stopped him for driving erratically northbound on Route 7.
Upon stopping Fordon’s black Lincoln SUV, police learned he had a loaded 4.5mm BB gun resembling a 9mm Walther pistol, as well as hollow-point pellets on the passenger-side floor. Fordon also had a prior arrest for threatening a pizza delivery driver with a BB gun in New York in 2017.
Fordon was arrested and held on $1,000 bond at Wilton police headquarters. Unable to make bail, Fordon was scheduled to be taken to Norwalk Superior Court on Dec. 18.
Around 6:40 a.m. on Dec. 17, a grill was found in the parking lot of 395 Danbury Road and taken to Wilton police headquarters. For further information, call the Wilton Police Department at 203-834-6260.
