Man charged with car break-ins, credit-card thefts
A Norwalk man faces a lengthy series of charges for what police said was a string of car break-ins and credit-card crimes during January.
Daniel Lewis, 27, was arrested last Tuesday on a warrant issued by Westport police charging him with multiple offenses, including burglary, larceny, identity theft and credit-card theft.
According to the report, Lewis was responsible for a series of car break-ins at local homes, and then illegally used credit cards stolen in the incidents. However, police said they were able to track Lewis's role in the burglaries through his illegal use of the credit cards.
Lewis was charged with third-degree burglary, credit-card theft, four counts of illegal use of a credit card, first-degree identity theft, sixth-degree larceny, third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit credit card theft, four counts of conspiracy to commit illegal use of a credit card, first-degree conspiracy to commit identity theft and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny.
Bond for Lewis was set at $35,000, and he was scheduled to appear Thursday at state Superior Court in Norwalk.
