New York City resident Boris Vivies, age 35, of the Bronx, was arrested on Tuesday, May 7, for the incident in Wilton in September 2022.

According to Lt. Anna Tornello of the Wilton Police, officers received complaints that checks had been stolen from mailboxes, altered, and then cashed for $4,000.

An extensive investigation found that Vivies was responsible for thefts, and an arrest warrant was issued.

On Thursday, May 2, Vivies was detained by NYPD Port Authority and transferred to Rikers Island. He was extradited to Connecticut and charged with identity theft and criminal attempt to commit larceny, Tornello said.

Vivies was held at Wilton Police Headquarters instead of a $50,000 bond.
