A motor vehicle stop on Monday, Sept. 10, led to the arrest of a 28-year-old man wanted on a charge of failure to appear in court in connection with an arrest in Norwalk on a fifth-degree larceny charge, Darien police said.
Police gave this further account, including accusations not proven in court:
Renzo Mendoza of New Canaan Avenue in Norwalk was driving east on Maple Street at 9:37 a.m., when a police officer saw him pass under a red traffic light at the road’s intersection with Noroton Avenue.
The officer stopped Mendoza’s vehicle. Police gave the location of the stop as 25 Hecker Ave. — Police Headquarters. That may have made his arrest a little easier. During the stop, the bench warrant for Mendoza’s arrest was found.
Mendoza was arrested and held until 9:03 p.m., when he posted the $2,500 bond. He is due to appear Sept. 20 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
