More charges could come in Norwalk dump thefts

NORWALK - Two workers could face more charges as police continue to investigate claims the men stole money from Norwalk's transfer station.

Police say Francis Antunes, 49, and Robert Grover, 47, would keep some of the money people paid when they dropped items off.

Police say they tried to cover their tracks by short weighting the drop offs.

Officers are now closely looking at the record of what came in and what went out to see if there are more thefts that have yet to be uncovered.

Authorities say that even if there are no further charges, the ones already in place could send the workers to prison for up to 10 years.
