NORWALK, Conn., -- A man who disappeared after failing to appear in a Florida court was arrested by Norwalk Police hiding out in a city home.
Norwalk Police got a tip that Julio Gonzalez-Morales, 20, was staying at a Reservoir Avenue home, Lt. Terry Blake said. They followed up on the tip and found him at the residence Thursday at about 9 a.m. and arrested him without incident as a fugitive from justice.
Gonzalez-Morales was wanted on charges out of Hillsborough County, Fla., for failure to appear in court there on the grand theft auto and burglary charges, Blake said.
Bond was set at $200,000 and his first scheduled court date is Dec. 12 as he awaits extradition to Florida, Blake said.
