Janitor Charged With Stealing Television From New Haven Jail
A Correction Department maintenance supervisor today was charged with stealing a television from the New Haven Correctional Center.
Forty-year-old Derek Riddick is charged with sixth degree larceny and making a false statement in the second degree.
State Police Lieutenant Paul Vance says the Prospect resident turned himself in today.
“The accused was found to be in possession of a Department of Correction television in his personal vehicle, which was parked in the facility’s garage,” Vance said.
Correction Department security reported the incident to State Police on March 19.
He is due back in court in New Haven on April 26.
