Crime

A Branford man who had been reported missing was arrested Monday for allegedly stealing a pickup truck. 

Police say that while patrolling Tilcon Road, an officer located a pickup truck that was reported stolen from the driveway of a nearby residence. 

The Branford officer, along with an East Haven officer and his K-9, then tracked from the stolen pickup truck to a nearby wooded area where they found 36-year-old Kyle Northam.

Northam had been the subject of a missing person’s case after his family reported him missing and were concerned for his well being

Northam was then taken into custody on several arrest warrants for failure to appear and larceny charges before an investigation revealed that he was also responsible for the pickup truck theft. 

Northam was detained on bonds.
