A felon on probation who's served prison time for multiple crimes was picked up this week on three outstanding warrants for charges stemming from June and July of this year.
On Sept. 15 at 10:15 a.m., Jonathan Meehl, 31, of Hunting Hill Avenue was taken in on an outstanding warrant. He's on probation, the report says, and wears an ankle bracelet.
He's charged with fifth- and sixth-degree larceny, illegal use of a credit card and credit card theft and attempt to commit a crime.
In August, police were called to Wesleyan Potters about Meehl, who was rummaging through unlocked cars. Witnesses told detectives Meehl had done this before and the report says he has several health issues, a self-admitted severe heroin addiction and lengthy criminal history.
In February 2010, according to the Middletown Press, Meehl plead guilty to two robberies and was sentenced by Middletown Superior Court Judge Patrick Clifford to eight years in prison, suspended after serving four years, followed by three years probation. Had he elected to take his chances in a trial, he could have received 35 years in jail if convicted, the Press reported.
In January 2007, the Press reported, Meehl broke into an area home through a kitchen window, causing $5,000 worth of damage and stealing $12,000 worth of items. Police found his blood inside the home and were able to track him, according to the report.
Meehl has multiple convictions stemming back as far as April 2010, according to the Connecticut Judicial website.
