Julio Molineros, 58, of 8691 208th Street in Queens was arrested by Greenwich Police on May 10 and charged with Risk of Injury to a Minor and Sexual Assault 4th degree. The incident stemmed back in 2016.
The Greenwich Police Special Victims unit responded to the Los Angeles County jail on May 10 to take Mr. Molineros into custody based on an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
According to Greenwich Police Sergeant Brent Reeves, of the special victims section, police reached to Dept of Homeland Security after receiving information on an address for Mr. Molineros.
Sergeant Reeves and Detective Carlos Franco traveled to Los Angeles to retrieve Mr. Molineros.
“We had gotten a hint on an address and contacted Homeland Security, who checked with LAPD’s fugitive warrant squad,” Reeves said during the Monday May 11 press briefing. “They identified him out there and held him as a fugitive.”
Reeves said this was not the first instance in which Greenwich Police collaborated with federal and state authorities to pursue justice and protect Greenwich residents.
Mr. Molineros was transported back to Greenwich where he was processed.
His bond was set at $50,000, which he was unable to post.
Mr. Molineros has a court date at Stamford Superior Court on May 24, 2017.
