Police: Man facing charges of larceny, forgery, identity theft


PLAINVILLE — A man is facing charges of stealing $16,000 from a local family.

Nicholas Domizio, 26, of no certain address, was arrested in Meriden on Wednesday and charged with second-degree larceny, first-degree identity theft, and six counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree forgery.

Detective Sgt. Nicholas Mullins said police began an investigation in February after receiving a report that Domizio stole money from a local family. Domizio met a member of the family online, and after becoming friends with the woman, was able to gain access to the family’s finances, Mullins said.

“Domizio took advantage of this female and manipulated her into allowing him access to credit cards and checks belonging to her parents,” Mullins said.

Police discovered evidence that Domizio may have committed similar acts in other towns, and at least one other municipality is conducting an investigation, Mullins said.
