Police said the warrant stemmed from a traffic stop in May of 2015, when Monique Morales, 28, of 155 Bungay Rd, Seymour, presented another woman’s driver’s license as her own to the police officer that stopped her.

That officer issued a ticket for the traffic stop, which went unpaid. The unpaid ticket resulted in the innocent person’s license being suspended.

When the license owner learned what happened, she reported it to police, and investigation determined that Morales had presented herself as someone else in order to evade responsibility for the traffic ticket.

An arrest warrant, charging criminal impersonation, third-degree identity theft and interfering with a police officer was issued and served as listed above.

 

Morales was released after posting $1,000 bond, for court Aug. 25.

Chief Robert Gagne and Officer Robert Amarone share a laugh during the award ceremony.

Every couple of years the Orange Board of Police Commissioners present awards to Orange police officers for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Although the awards ceremony generally takes place every two years, it has been three years since the last one, so all of these honors presented on May 16 are for incidents that took place in 2010, 2011 or 2012.

Officer Robert Amarone was one of those honored at this year’s ceremony on May 16.

Following is what was read during the presentation:

 LETTER OF RECOGNITION

 Officer Robert Amarone

The Board of Police Commissioners is proud to award you this Letter of Recognition in connection with your diligence and prompt action in apprehending a larceny suspect.

On December 1, 2010 at 4:53 p.m., Kohl’s loss prevention employees began surveillance of a male who was loading multiple pieces of jewelry, wrist watches, and clothing into a shopping cart without regard to price or size.  The male suspect was then seen putting the items into a shopping bag from another department store.

The loss prevention employee notified the police of the suspicious activity and gave a description of the suspect, at which time Officers Robert Amarone and Michael Kosh were dispatched.

As Officer Amarone was arriving, he observed the suspect walk out of Kohl’s with the stolen merchandise in two bags while being followed by a Kohl’s loss prevention employee.  When Officer Amarone approached the suspect, the male dropped the store merchandise and began to run across the parking lot.

Officer Amarone chased the male alone through heavy rain, catching up to and tackling the male in the grass near the main driveway.  The male continued to struggle with Officer Amarone, but Officer Amarone maintained control of the suspect until the arrival of Officer Kosh and his canine partner Maximus.

Once the suspect saw the additional officer and heard the barking police dog, he became more compliant and surrendered.

Officer Amarone’s arrest and control training, coupled with his decisive action, resulted in the capture of a fleeing suspect. The suspect was subsequently prosecuted for larceny, drug, criminal impersonation, and interfering charges.

The Board of Police Commissioners recognizes Officer Robert Amarone’s diligence and dedication to duty.
