Man charged with selling $30K boat that wasn’t his

MILFORD Conn. (WTNH) — A Trumbull man is facing larceny charges after police say he was trying to sell a boat that wasn’t his.

Milford police say 24-year-old Christopher Fiore told the Department of Motor Vehicles that a $30,000 boat was abandoned at the Titan Marine Group, LLC property.

Police say he removed the owners name on the 2002 Maxum 29000SE boat and then filed fraudulent paperwork through the DMV. This allowed Fiore to take possession of the boat and sell it.

Fiore is facing multiple charges including larceny and forgery. He is due in court on September 13.
