On Monday Greenwich Police Dept Warrants and Extraditions Unit traveled to Queens County Criminal Court building in New York and took Mark S Wnek, 53, of 94 Business Park Drive in Armonk, NY into custody for extradition back to Connecticut.

94 Business Park Drive in Armonk is the address associated with La Quinta Inn & Suites.

Greenwich Police say back in October 2019 Mr. Wnek stayed at a local hotel, accepted their hospitality and services, and then departed without paying the bill. The subsequent investigation determined that Mr. Wnek had no intention of paying the bill at the time he checked in.

Greenwich Police obtained an arrest warrant for Mr. Wnek and on Feb 20 he was stopped at JFK airport as he was attempting to leave the country. He was charged as a fugitive at that time by New York authorities, based upon the active arrest warrant.

Mr. Wnek was charged with Larceny 3. His bond was set at $20,000. He has a date in Stamford Superior Court on March 9, 2020.
