They posted the following to the New Milford Police Department Facebook page:

The New Milford Police Department is investigating a credit card fraud complaint and is asking for assistance in identifying the male in the photograph. Anyone with any information is being asked to email Officer Dru Sin at DSin@newmilfordpolice.org or call him at 860-355-3133.

There is no hiding from cameras these days, thankfully I'm not looking to be involved in any alleged credit card fraud scheme anytime soon. I just want enough privacy to scratch my nose and not have it look like I'm not wrist deep in my nostril.

After the posting went up, the public had some questions/comments:

Barbie R.F.: "Why didn’t he get arrested loading his truck? Nobody did anything or nothing on video? Why aren’t these people being stopped?!!! Maybe security needs to be at these stores!"

Jimmy W. Jr.: "From a former H D Contractor cashier, I guarantee there is saw blades and a lot of stuff tucked in those boxes of flooring...As above typed, Its easy with self check out.. Rumor has it he was asking where the break room was after checking out because he was tired." 

Greg J: "It's no wonder why these criminals can do your jobs for you cheaper. They get the material for free. Nothing happens to these people so they will keep doing this. Have you noticed how much more we are paying for things ? The money they steal is coming out of our pockets !!!! For you who don't understand the stores increase the prices to cover their loses. What do laws mean when they keep getting away with their crimes !!! Feel safe out there ???"

That's a pretty clear picture.

He'll probably be caught by the end of this sentence.

Exclusive Photos, Videos, and Interviews on the Set of New Milford Horror Movie

"Candlewood" is a horror film that just finished filming in New Milford, CT. This is how the filmmakers described the project on their Indiegogo: 
"Candlewood is the first movie of three in the psychological/horror feature film franchise. A blended family moves from the city to a small town in Connecticut, where a local urban legend adds chaos and terror to an already fragile family dynamic. The staunch patriarch, who desperately wants his family to not see him as a failure but as the father that did everything, he could to keep his family together through difficult times. Candlewood follows a family leaving New York City for a simpler life in the country town of New Milford, CT. The haunting and mysterious true stories of missing hikers near a popular state park, Lover's Leap, coupled with the town of Jerusalem sitting at the bottom of Candlewood Lake gives credibility to our narrative. We bring to life the struggle of good vs evil and what happens when lifelong, outdated traditions are challenged." 
A while back I got in touch with the folks behind the movie, invited them on the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou and Dave and talked about the film, and shooting in New Milford. We spoke with Director Myke Furhman and Writer/Executive Producer Victoria Flores-Argue. During that discussion, I demanded to be in the movie, telling the duo that I have some experience acting on TV shows that never actually made it onto TV. Against all odds, they did invite me to participate and I visited the set on October 20th to shoot a scene that is important. I was extremely nervous and I had zero idea of what I was in for. Below are some insider moments from my day on-set and from others.
