NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

A New Haven firefighter accused of stealing from an elderly woman faced a judge on Tuesday.

Police said Kenneth Burgos conned the 95-year-old victim into signing a will that would give him power of attorney.

He was issued a do not contact order in court. He was also given a new court date of Jan 13.

Burgos was arrested last week.

When police checked the victim's accounts, they found more than $125,000 missing.

Burgos, a 17-year veteran of the fire department, faces larceny charges.
