A Massachusetts man was taken into custody in his hometown Thursday and extradited to Connecticut to face charges of stalking his former girlfriend in Enfield, police said.
David Monroe, 47, of Chicopee, MA, was charged with first-degree stalking and criminal violation of a restraining order. He was held on a court-ordered $75,000 bond, and was arraigned Friday in Enfield Superior Court.
Monroe is accused of leaving bottles of urine on his ex-girlfriend's property on several occasions over the past few months, as well as numerous sunflower seed casings, Lt. William Zaczynski said.
After the woman obtained a restraining order against Monroe, she observed him driving by her house and called police. While an officer was talking with the woman, Monroe sent her a text message in violation of the order, Zaczynski said.
While being questioned by Enfield detectives, Monroe admitted leaving the bottles of urine on the woman's property, claiming "he wanted to symbolize being pissed off," Zaczynski said.
