Financial Adviser Accused of Stealing $1M from Clients

State prosecutors are accusing a former financial adviser from Farmington of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from clients.

Anthony Tsikitas, 29, may have stolen more than $800,000 from investors, prosecutors said.

The state investigates Tsikitas' financial activities and he faces several charges.

Tsikitas made an appearance in Hartford Superior Court Monday on charges of racketeering, first-degree larceny, second-degree forgery and two counts of prohibited activities regarding the offer, sale and purchase of securities.

Bond was set at $200,000 and he's due back in court Jan. 2.
