Greenwich Police have arrested a Norwalk man on a fugitive from justice charge stemming from a burglary case in Bedford.
According to Greenwich Police report, they received information that Kevin C. Childs, 46, of 577 Belden Hill Rd., Norwalk, would be at the state Superior Court in Stamford with a friend who had an appointment with a probation officer on Aug. 29.
When Childs showed up, state court marshals told Childs there was a warrant for his arrest charging him as a fugitive from justice. That charge stems from Bedford Police obtaining an arrest warrant charging Childs with third-degree burglary, according to the report.
According to Det. Sgt. Thomas Diebold, Childs allegedly forcefully entered an Adams Street commercial building on Aug. 6 at approximately 9:20 p.m. and stole 8 chainsaws valued at $8,000 and caused an additional $500 damage to a door.
He will be charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree grand larceny, both Class D felonies, and third-degree criminal mischief, a Class E felony.
Greenwich took custody of Childs who was held in lieu of $250,000 bond, pending an extradition hearing.
Diebold said Childs waived extradition and police will execute the arrest warrant next week and return him to Bedford Court for a Sept. 6 appearance.
