Former Hartford Police Officer Charged with Larceny

A former Hartford police officer who also serves as a State Representative was arrested today and charged with collecting on-duty pay from the city while working private duty jobs for which he was also paid.

HECTOR ROBLES, age 39, of Hartford was arrested by Inspectors from the Financial Crimes Bureau in the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney on a warrant charging him with two counts of Larceny in the First Degree.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Mr. Robles falsified his timesheets with the Hartford Police Department by claiming he was on duty when he was actually working private duty jobs.

Investigators determined that between September 2008 and September 2009 Mr. Robles defrauded the police department out of $10,651.81, the warrant states.

Mr. Robles, who is State Representative for the 6th Assembly District, was previously dismissed from the police department.

Larceny in the First Degree is a felony punishable by a maximum prison term of 20 years on each count. The charges are merely accusations and Mr. Robles is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Mr. Robles was released on a written promise to appear and will be arraigned in Hartford Superior Court, G.A. No. 14, on March 8, 2011. The case is being prosecuted by the Financial Crimes Bureau in the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney.
