Wilton Police arrested a New Milford man who allegedly stole money from adults with special needs living in a group home in Wilton. According to police, Willis Howell worked at the group home since October 2014, managing finances and the well being of the residents.

He is accused of submitting false receipts and invoices, withdrawing money from the residents’ accounts, and with using his employer-issued credit cards that were intended to be used to take care of the home’s residents, to make purchases for his own personal use instead.

Howell was arrested March 17 on a warrant issued in December 2015. He was charged with six counts of Forgery 3rd degree, three counts of Larceny 2nd degree, and one count of Larceny 4th degree.

He was released on a $1,500 cash bond and was scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, March 28.
