According to WTNH News 8, some of the surveillance footage collected by police following pings on Fotis Dulos's phone shows a man -- who police believe is Fotis Dulos -- dumping garbage in front of a Spanish restaurant near Albany Avenue and Garden Street in Hartford.

The restaurant is more than 70 miles from Jennifer Dulos' New Canaan home, where police believe a struggle took place in the garage area before she went missing on Friday, May 24 after dropping her children off at school.

Police reportedly searched the area for days, following the phone pings and video surveillance collected.

An employee told WTNH that police asked if they could look in the trash and he opened the dumpster for them and then went about his business.

The employee reportedly told News 8, “they looked around looking for a so-called mat. I guess they’re saying it’s the mat from her car.”

State Police and other law enforcement officials spent weeks going through a Hartford trash plant after finding several bags containing items with Jennifer Dulos' blood. 

A criminal arrest complaint says Fotis Dulos was spotted at more than 30 spots in the Hartford area dumping garbage bags and other items.

He and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were arrested following the discovery and charged with tampering and hindering prosecution. They are both free on $500,000 bond.

Fotis’ attorney Norm Pattis recently told News 8 that he intends to prove that his client was not involved with his wife's disappearance.

“There’s a time for every disclosure we’ve got a lot to say," Pattis told News 8. "We’ve only just begun to tell Mr. Dulos’ story."
