Cops: Man Turns Himself in After Stealing a 1989

Police say a man charged with stealing a television in Connecticut 27 years ago flew from his Florida home and voluntarily turned himself in last weekend after recently learning there was a warrant out for this arrest, the AP reports. Police in Norwalk, Connecticut, tell the Hour that 60-year-old Randy Iannacone of Port St. Lucie, Florida, arrived at headquarters Sunday with the letter notifying him of the warrant. Iannacone was arrested and charged with third-degree larceny. He was released with a promise to appear in court next week. The charge stemmed from the 1989 theft of a television from the Norwalk Jewish Center, where Iannacone worked as a custodian. Lieutenant Paul Resnick says it was "pretty cool" that Iannacone turned himself in. (More larceny stories.)
