A New London man has been charged with seven counts of burglary, five counts of theft and two counts of criminal property damage in connection with a string of burglaries that occurred in Sulphur, Louisiana.
In July 2011, a Sulpher resident encountered an intruder, later identified as Scott L. Dorow, 27, New London, in his home.
The intruder ran out of the house and was quickly picked up by a car with three people in it. The homeowner followed the car in his truck and witnessed Dorow jumping out of the car after it stopped and fleeing on foot.
A warrant was issued for Dorow’s arrest and the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office posted information about Dorow on the FBI’s National Criminal Information Center’s database.
On Dec. 2, Waupaca County sheriff’s deputies recognized Dorow and took him into custody.
On Dec. 14, Dorow was released from custody on a $35,000 surety bond with the condition that he go to Louisiana and turn himself in to authorities. A surety bond guarantees payment by placing a lien on another person’s property.
Dorow subsequently contacted the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office and informed officers that he would be returning. He was taken into custody in Louisiana on Jan. 10 and the lien in Waupaca County was released the following day.
Dorow is currently in Calcasieu jail on a $176,500 bond.
