A man wanted for threatening a Greenwich woman has been brought back to Connecticut to face charges. Greenwich police officers went to Chicago Wednesday to retrieve Randall Mason, 28, who was accused of threatening and harassing the woman at her Stamford workplace, causing her to lose her job.
"His m.o. is to try to get these people fired," said Lt. Richard Cochran. "It happened to this person and it happened to a past girlfriend."
"Within two or three days of the Community Impact Section taking the case, we had him in custody," said Capt. Tim Berry.
The Greenwich woman, an ex-girlfriend, reported Mason to the police department on July 20.
The man was located with the help of Sgt. Timothy Hilderbrand. Sgt. Mike Reynolds and the Community Impact Section worked with other state agencies to make one of his warrants extraditable. Mason was arrested in Illinois on Aug. 5 and waived extradition.
"He had found another girlfriend in Illinois and was repeating his pattern," said Berry. "He felt that he was out of New England, so that he was safe."
Six Connecticut agencies had warrants for Mason on charges of violating probation, larceny in the fifth degree, larceny in the third degree and identity theft.
"If he makes bond, he'll get passed off to Stamford and then department to department," said Berry, who said it's possible the charges against Mason could be combined. "That will be up to the state attorney."
Mason was being held in lieu of $75,000 bond. He appeared in court Thursday.
