Man accused of identity theft


Plainville police arrested a man after a lengthy investigation into allegations of identity theft.

Members of the Plainville Police Department began the investigation in February after a complaint was made that a man named Nicholas Domizio, 26, stole money from a family in town.

The family told police Domizio was able to take advantage of a girl and manipulated her into allowing him to gain access to credit cards and checks that belonged to her parents.

In total, police said Domizio was able to steal $16,000.

Police said that through evidence gathered during the investigation, it was believed that Domizio was responsible for similar crimes in other towns, and would be able to do so by using social media to seek out victims.

Domizio doesn't have a permanent address and was known to stay at different homes.

At least one other community is investigating Domizio, and anyone that may have had interaction with him and suffered a financial loss should call police.

Domizio was arrested Wednesday and was charged with larceny, identity theft and six counts of conspiracy to commit forgery.

He was held on $100,000 bond.
