MILFORD — Police arrested a North Haven man Tuesday in connection with an August 2019 incident in which he allegedly sold fake motor vehicle insurance cards to customers at the car dealership where he worked.

According to police reports, Milford police Tuesday took custody of Harold Butler, 50, of North Haven, on a warrant. The arrest warrant stemmed from an Aug. 20 report made by Napoli Kia, 688 Bridgeport Ave., regarding alleged fraud and larceny.

Milford detectives conducted a detailed investigation, which led to the warrant for Butler.

Butler is charged with third-degree larceny and released on a $25,000 bond. He is to appear in Milford court March 3.
