Last Seen in Greenwich, a $7,000 Watch Turns up at Déja Vu in Port Chester

Marcelo F Furtado, 32, of 273 Delavan Avenue in Greenwich was charged with Larceny 3rd degree and Harassment 2nd degree after an incident on Sept. 10 involving a stolen watch and jewelry on Indian Harbor Drive.

Furtado was arrested on Oct. 20 at about 4:40pm after Greenwich Police responded to Stamford Superior Court to arrest him on an active warrant. Furtado was being detained by the Stamford Judicial Marshals and was at Court for a scheduled probation meeting with his parole officer.

Furtado was taken into custody on the active warrant for Harassment 2nd degree and Larceny 3rd degree. There were also active warrants for Violation of Probation for an incident on High Street stemming back to May 8, 2013, an incident on Sept. 6, 2012 on West Putnam Ave, and an incident on High St on Dec. 26, 2013. His bond was set at $25,000, which was unable to post bond. He was placed in the cell block.

According to Greenwich Police Lt. Kraig Gray, the victim of the Larceny and Harassment knew the suspect, as he had done work at her residence and, in conversation, discussed the idea of opening  a pawn shop. According to Police, the victim recalled that during a conversation between herself and the suspect they approached Déja Vu Again in Port Chester where Furtado repeated his interest in starting a business.

According to Lt. Gray, the victim found jewelry missing from her home, and, based on the conversations she’d had with the suspect, she went to Déja Vu Again Consignment and located one of her missing items, a watch valued at $7,000. Missing in all, were items worth in excess of $10,000. The Harassment charge resulted from the suspect contacting the victim on the phone.

Furtado was assigned a court date of Oct. 27 in Stamford Superior Court.
