Police: Man arrested for defrauding elderly out of thousands in Darien
Darien police have arrested a man they say defrauded thousands of dollars from the elderly.
Police say Emmanuel Bazil is suspected of calling elderly victims and telling them a loved one was in trouble and needed money for a lawyer.
The victims then sent packages of cash to local addresses where the money could be intercepted.
An arrest warrant for Bazil was issued in 2019, but he could not be found.
Officials finally caught up with him last month when he showed up for a scheduled court date in Stamford.
