Bristol Police Arrest Fugitive Who Jumped Bail
Bristol Police say they have located the subject of a nationwide alert who jumped bail and went on the run rather than appear in court for the verdict in a 2008 sentencing. 42-year-old Esteban Hernaiz of Meadow Street in Bristol was found guilty in New Britain Superior court, but failed to appear for the sentencing. He had been free on $575,000 bond.
Hernaiz was picked up on a failure to appear warrant after police learned he was in Hartford. They arrested him there without incident.
