NEWTOWN, Conn. -- A Newtown man was charged with stealing from the Newtown Social Services Department by requesting items to fix his home and then returning the items for cash, according to the Newtown Police Department.

George Hospodar, 60, of Berkshire Road, was arrested by police on an outstanding warrant following an earlier investigation that turned up the theft, police said. According to police, Hospodar would ask the Social Services Department for various parts on numerous occasions to make home repairs. 

The repairs were supposed to be made by Hospodar, but instead of using the items, he would return them to the store and not make the repairs, police said. 

He was charged with second-degree larceny by defrauding a public community and attempt to commit a crime, police said. Hospodar was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in Danbury Court on May 10.
