Photo - Appliance return - Home Depot. This picture shows Detective Davis returning appliances seized from a residence in Torrington, Connecticut. Officer Mike Fedor originally took a report on the incident, when a Waterford resident complained that their identification had been compromised and items purchased with credit cards in their name. Detective Davis took over the investigation, which led him to the aforementioned Torrington residence. The appliances were seized while they were being delivered to the house, and the people were later arrested (that occurred in January of 2014). Once the identity theft was cleared up, the courts allowed us to return the items to the victim in the case - the Home Depot company. This picture shows the HD truck with Detective Davis comparing the serial numbers one last time before they are taken away. Doesn't matter where it leads us, we'll investigate what we can to help our citizens out! Our thanks the to Torrington Police Department for their help in this matter, they did a great job.
