An insider at the New Haven Police Department is accused of passing information to a wanted suspect's mother.
Mildred Belton, 53, is a civilian worker who allegedly accessed information in a state law enforcement database.
The accusations, said police, involve a 24-year-old man, Aaron Hall, who they say threw an assault weapon from a car.
Police say Belton has worked at NHPD for nearly 16 years and is now on administrative leave. She's charged with misuse of a computer and a misdemeanor obstruction charge.
