A man was arrested last week in Norwalk on multiple charges surrounding an identity theft case earlier this fall, Westport Police say.
The arrest occurred Tuesday, Nov. 20 after a warrant was submitted and approved due in Norwalk Superior Court due to a previous incident.
A woman and man, Daisha Haynes and Jovan Boy, respectively, both of Bridgeport, were initially taken into custody on Monday, Oct. 8 after a short police pursuit. Haynes and Boyd had both exited the vehicle and fled the scene in a second vehicle. Upon searching the first vehicle, police discovered a large amount of mail that had allegedly been stolen from Westport as well as other surrounding areas.
Haynes was also found to have 10 different credit cards in the names of other individuals. Detectives went on to contact the people whose identities had been used to open the accounts, including the owner of the second vehicle, who reported that he had recently been the victim of identity theft after several fake credit card accounts and two utility accounts were opened using his information. The address of the accounts was found to be associated with 90 Worth Street in Bridgeport, which is the address of Jovan Boyd.
Detectives continued the investigation by examining a series of surveillance videos that confirmed the conduct of several fraudulent transactions by Haynes and Boyd.
Boyd’s Nov. 20 arrest led to a multitude of charges, including identity theft, false statement to procure issuance of credit card, larceny, embezzlement, and four counts of conspiracy to commit fraud. He was held in lieu of $75,000 court set bond.
