Wilton Police Charge New York Man in Chimney Scam

WILTON, Conn. – After working with Suffolk County Police in New York, the Wilton Police Department executed an arrest warrant for Christopher Tullon, in connection with a 2011 chimney sweep scam.

Tullon, 30, of Coram, N.Y., originally was arraigned June 24, 2011 for allegedly scamming of a 92-year-old Wilton man. When Tullon failed to arrive for his court date, a warrant for a felony failure to appear was issued by Wilton police.
