Police in Hartford arrested a man in connection to a car fire that happened in March of 2017.

In March of 2017, authorities say officers responded to a car fire on Nelson Street in Hartford. They say a 2002 Acura MDX was fully involved and fire crews extinguished the blaze. 

Officials say the fire was deemed as an arson following an investigation and Major Crimes Division (MCD) took over the case. 

Police say the owner of the car, 42-year-old Myron Henry, reported the car was stole on the day of the fire. During the investigation, they say it was found that he submitted a property claim with his insurance company in relation to the fire damage. 

From there, authorities say an arrest warrant was obtained after probable cause was developed that Henry committed criminal acts of insurance fraud and falsely reporting the theft of a motor vehicle. 

On September 8, officials say Henry was arrested for narcotics sales related charges in the city. They say detectives in the MCD were notified of his arrest.

Police say the active arrest warrant was served when he was taken to MCD. They say he was charged with insurance fraud and falsely reporting the theft of a motor vehicle.
