Orange Police served a warrant on a Department Of Corrections inmate who appeared in Derby Superior Court,106 Elizabeth Street, Derby, on April 15 at 10:15 a.m.

The warrant stemmed from a burglary in February of 2019 when the arrestee, identified as Christopher Dahlinger, 27 of New Haven, and an accomplice stole the ATM machine from the Courtyard Marriot Hotel on Marsh Hill Road.

The investigation led to the issuance of a warrant charging Dahlinger with second-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, and conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny.

Dahlinger was arraigned in court that day.

Orange Police: “Road Rage” Incident On Route 34 Leads To Arrest

Apr 152019

Orange police responded to Route 34 westbound regarding a motor vehicle accident between an SUV type vehicle and a motorcycle on Saturday, April 13 at 5:23 p.m.

Upon arrival, officers found the motorcycle rider had landed in the roadway and lost his helmet. He had suffered a life-threatening head injury. He was given medical treatment on scene and then transported to an area hospital.

The arrestee, later identified as Jerzy Narowski, 63, of West Haven, who was driving the SUV, left the scene.

Witnesses to the incident were able to give officers a description of the vehicle and the events that occurred. Using this information, Derby Police officers located the evading vehicle within their city and stopped it.

Orange police officers responded to Derby, where Narowski was taken into custody. Witnesses described a ‘road-rage’ situation where Narowski and the motorcycle rider reportedly were arguing with each other along Route 34. At some point, Narowski swerved his vehicle into the path of the motorcycle, but the cyclist was able to maintain travel.

The SUV swerved at the motorcycle again, striking it, causing the cyclist to lose control and be ejected from the motorcycle. The cyclist landed on the pavement, where he lost his helmet before coming to a stop.

Narowski was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree reckless endangerment, making an improper lane change, reckless driving, and evading the scene of a motor vehicle accident. He was held on $75,000 bond for court April 15.

The Orange Police Department Accident Reconstruction Team is handling this investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, or the events leading up to it, is asked to contact Officer Denny Peterson at 203.891.2130 x409.

The Accident Reconstruction Team will determine whether any further charges are necessary in this incident. This summary was provided by the Orange Police Records Division, 203.891.2134 opdrecords@orange-ct.gov

No, You Didn’t Miss The Orange Shredding Day

Event to include Mattress Recycling and Clothing and Household Goods Drive

The Orange Recycling Committee has announced the next paper shredding and mattress recycling event for Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 9 a.m. to noon at High Plains Community Center (HPCC). The committee will be joined by the Orange Community Women hosting a FUNDrive for Clothes and Household Items.

The secure, on-site paper shredding service will once again be handled by Affordable Solutions, owned and operated by Orange resident Joe Johnston. Residents may bring bags or boxes filled with documents for shredding and volunteers from the Orange Recycling Committee will deposit them into the shredding truck. This service is generously funded by the Rotary Club of Orange. Residents may show their appreciation by donating to the Orange Rotary Scholarship Fund. Rotarians will be on hand to collect donations.

Residents also may bring mattresses and box springs for recycling. This free service is made possible through a partnership with the Mattress Recycling Council’s Bye Bye Mattress Program. Dry mattresses (of all sizes) and box springs will be accepted. However, mattresses from futons/sofa beds or waterbeds; mattresses infested with bed bugs; wet, damaged or excessively soiled mattresses; sleeping bag or mattress pads/toppers, are not part of the program.

For residents who need assistance getting mattresses and box springs to the event, members of the Orange Lions Club will pick-up these items from residences, given they are outside and dry or in a garage for easy access, as volunteers will not enter individual homes. Anyone interested in this pick-up service should contact Ken Lenz at 203-795-3906. The fee for pick-up is $10 per mattress or box spring. Payment is by cash or check made out to Orange Lions Charities, and all proceeds are considered a charitable donation.

The Orange Community Women are asking residents to bring clothing, shoes, towels, electronics, toys and games, kitchen items, sporting goods and more to the High Plains Pavilion that morning. This benefit will help support many community projects.

Orange Recycling Committee Chair Mitch Goldblatt said he is excited about the one-stop service. “Saturday,
April 27th will be a great morning for Spring Cleaning at its best”, Goldblatt said. “I’m encouraging all residents to bring their household goods and clothes in addition to their documents, papers, and even mattresses for an ultimate recycling event!”

“We are thrilled to partner with the Rotary Club of Orange, the Orange Lions Club, and the Orange Community Women to offer these important environmental services to residents,” said Goldblatt. “Purging homes of these items and keeping them out of landfills helps our environment as well as our tax dollars. This is a fun event that gives volunteers and residents an opportunity to work together for a cleaner and more sustainable planet.”

For the eighth time, the Orange Recycling Committee is helping residents dispose of thousands of pounds of sensitive financial and medical papers in a secure, environmentally-responsible way. Adding mattress and box spring as well as household goods recycling to this event has made this one event not to be missed.

WHEN: Saturday, April 27, 2019, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., rain or shine
