Orange Police Ask for Help Finding Wanted Man

Orange police are asking for the public's help in finding a man involved in a hit-and-run crash and leading police on a car chase earlier this month.

According to police, David Dileonardo, 29, is accused of leading police on a chase onto Interstate 95 after he left the scene of a collision on Jan. 9. He crashed his car on Saw Mill Road in West Haven, got out and ran.

It's not clear what he might be driving now. Police said he's known to frequent the Waterbury and Naugatuck areas.

Dileonardo is wanted on charges of sixth-degree larceny for allegedly driving a car with a stolen license plate, engaging police in pursuit, evading responsibility and other motor vehicle offenses.

His court-set bond will be $15,000.

Anyone with information on Dileonardo's whereabouts is urged to call Orange police Det. Mike Morrin of the Investigative Services Unit at 203-891-2138.
