Reynald Lespinasse, 42, of Stamford, was arrested Thursday morning after police said he burglarized the home of a one-time friend.
Lespinasse was told not to come to the home by its owner who had been a friend of Lespinasse, police said. The owner left the residence for the night to avoid contact with Lespinasse, police said. When the owner returned Thursday morning, he found Lespinasse walking down the stairs from the second floor, according to the report, and then came to police headquarters, police said.
When officers arrived at the home, Lespinasse had left, police said. The screen on the front window had a bent frame and the owner noticed that money was missing, police said. Lespinasse was later found at the Green's Farms Metro-North train station, police said.
Police also discovered a warrant from Stamford police for Lespinasse's arrest on a failure to appear charge.
Lespinasse was charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and second-degree failure to appear. He was released on a $5,000 bond for the burglary and larceny charges and a $1,000 bond for the failure-to-appear charge.
Lespinasse was arraigned Thursday morning at Norwalk Superior Court.
