NORWALK, Conn. An envelope marked $800 was $200 short, Norwalk police say, in reference to money missing in September from an overnight deposit at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Other deposits were short as well one envelope was empty and on Monday police made an arrest in the case.
Daquane King, 20, of 11 Sable St., came to work at the Westport Avenue restaurant on Sept. 27 and quit, turning in his keys, according to Sgt. James Boff. Money had been missing the night before and police were called to investigate the discrepancies, a total of $2,646.55.
King was arrested on a warrant Monday and charged with third-degree larceny. The court-set bond was $10,000.

? A Newtown man received a disturbing phone call Monday from a woman he did not know, Boff said: She said she was "being raped by a weirdo."
He called Newtown police, who tracked down the number to a Norwalk address. Police went to the Cedar Street home at 5:50 p.m. and found a very intoxicated 44-year-old woman, who had a partially consumed 40-ounce bottle of malt liquor and did not remember making any phone calls, Boff said. She was asked if she could walk to a waiting ambulance and fell down. She was taken to Norwalk Hospital. Police do not suspect a sexual assault.
