(WTNH)–A fugitive is headed back to Florida after being arrested in Connecticut. On Saturday, state police got a tip that Blair Thompson was hiding out in Mansfield.
The 28-year-old Thompson is wanted in Florida for sexually assaulting a four-year-old child.
Troopers spent the weekend running down leads and conducting surveillance. Eventually, they were able to find Thompson, and take him into custody.
He is being held on $500,000 bond. State police are coordinating extradition efforts with authorities in Florida.
