A Danbury man has been arrested by Bethel Police for a home invasion, larceny and other charges. Bethel Police responded to a Windaway Road home shortly after midnight on May 25th on a report of a home invasion.
The 82-year old victim reported that an unknown male entered his house, woke him up and held a knife to his neck while demanding gold and money. The victim handed over money and was tied up with an extension cord. Later in the day the victim reported to detectives that his wallet was also missing from the bedroom and several of his credit cards were being used in Danbury.
Detectives were able to identify the suspect using the victim’s credit cards as 60-year old Johnny Conyers, who previously lived across the street from the victim.
Bethel Police Detectives were able to locate Conyers in the area of Division Street in Danbury and took him into custody on the financial crimes warrant. Once arrested, Bethel Detectives were able to secure several items of evidence linking Conyers to the home invasion and on Saturday, June 4, secured an arrest warrant for Conyers for Home Invasion, Robbery, Unlawful Restraint, Larceny, Criminal Mischief, Reckless Endangerment, Threatening, and Assault.
Conyers is currently being held on a $250,000 bond for the Financial Crimes case and a court set $500,000 bond for the home invasion investigation. The financial crimes warrant is for six counts each of Identity Theft, Illegal Use of Credit Card, Larceny, and Receipt of Goods Obtained by Illegal Use of Credit Card.
