Police Staffer Behind Bars For Snitching

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.
