New Canaan Suspect Caught After Skipping Court

NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan Police charged a Norwalk man with skipping two court dates dating back almost 10 years, Sgt. Carol Ogrinc said.

Efrain Depaz, 40, was picked up by Stamford police on Friday night and transferred to New Canaan because of the two warrants, Ogrinc said. She was unsure of why Stamford Police had him.

Depaz was charged with first-degree failure to appear in relation to allegedly skipping an April 2003 court date for a second-degree forgery charge, Ogrinc said.

He was also charged with second-degree failure to appear related to allegedly missing court on another case on the same day, she said. That case was for charges of improper markers, operating a motor vehicle under suspension, no insurance, failure to use turn signal, failure to get emissions, and two counts of second-degree failure to appear, Ogrinc said.

Depaz was released after posting a $10,000 bond for the first incident and a $2,000 bond for the second incident, and is scheduled to appear in court on March 27.
