GREENWICH, Conn. A Greenwich woman and her boyfriend were arrested on a charge of interfering with an officer when they gave false information about her sons whereabouts, police say.
The son was wanted in New York City for allegedly robbing two people at gunpoint, police say.
Greenwich police gave the following account:
The New York City Police Department contacted Greenwich police Thursday, telling them that a suspect in an armed home invasion robbery was living in Greenwich. Police met with Darlene Brockenbaugh, 54, and her boyfriend, Alfred Ingram, 66, of 765 Southern Blvd. in the Bronx, N.Y., at the womans home at 12 Ann St.
The two told police that the suspect, Sledge Frederick, was Brockenbaughs son and that he was at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. They told police Frederick had been shot but was recovering and would be released Friday. NYPD detectives found that Frederick had been discharged from the hospital a day earlier, police said.
Greenwich police spoke again to Ingram, who admitted that he and Brockenbaugh intentionally misled investigators. Then they said Frederick was in the apartment.
Detectives returned to the apartment where Brockenbaugh, crying, said she lied because she was worried for Frederick. He was found outside on the stairwell, attempting to flee the apartment.
The three were arrested on a charge of interfering with an officer and are due in court Dec. 14.
Frederick was extradited to New York City. Police say Frederick and an accomplice robbed two people at gunpoint, assaulted them with a gun, and stole items from their home. He was additionally charged as a fugitive from justice. He was being held on a $500,000 bond and was due in court Friday.
Also from the Greenwich Police Department:
A teen who was waiting outside the Greenwich Avenue CVS while two male teens tried to pass counterfeit money was charged with forgery and interfering with an officer when she gave police a fake name.
Greenwich police gave the following account: The two teens were found using fake $100 bills at the CVS and told police there was a female teen in their car waiting for their return. The girl gave police a fake name and told them that she was 19-years-old. She was later found out to be 14 and had a different name.
The girl told police that she didnt know why she gave a fake name, except that she was scared. She admitted to knowing that the other teens had one fake bill, but didnt know what they were going to do with it. She was released into the custody of her father and is due in court on Dec. 6.
