A convicted felon with a lengthy record is facing new charges after stealing more than $2,400 from a disabled Fairfield resident and pawning his Sacred Heart University class ring, according to police.
Angelo Younger, 49, was arrested at Bridgeport Adult Probation on Sept. 3. He’s accused of taking cash and checks amounting to $2,442.25 from a man with special needs in Fairfield on July 10.
According to police, Younger sold the victim’s class ring at a Bridgeport pawn shop four days later, pocketing another $170.
Police said Younger used his “intimidating size” to take advantage of the victim, and “coerced” him into handing over the money.
Younger is charged with second-degree larceny, second-degree burglary, third-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and disorderly conduct and is being held on $50,000 bond.
He has a criminal history in both Connecticut and North Carolina, the latter of which dates back to 1989, according to police.
Younger was also arrested in 2011 for posing as a home health aide at Sullivan-McKinney Elder Housing in Fairfield and stealing from senior citizens there, police said.
He's due in court Sept. 23.
