Perp Walks of the Week: CT Police Nab Alleged PWC Fraudster


A Connecticut dealer is facing charges he allegedly stole jetskis and forged sales paperwork.

Brian Dunn, 32, owner of CT Powersports, was issued a $10,000 bond on third and fourth-degree larcneny and second-degree forgery charges, according to the Register-Citizen newspaper.

CT Powersports has an office in New Milford. Police there got a call from New Jersey state police in mid-January, saying they had traced a stolen jet ski to a Norwalk home during a multi-state investigation into Dunn’s business.

The homeowner told authorities he bought the jet ski and a trailer from Dunn last year, and that he’d hired CT Powersports to winterize his jet ski the year before. He contacted Dunn again last spring, and Dunn offered to sell him a 1997 Yamaha model and trailer for $1500. But when the vehicle was delivered, the man was unsatisfied and wanted to return it, but eventually agreed to pay $500.

Another customer wanted to sell two older PWC on consignment, and Dunn allegedly agreed to pay him $3,500 upon selling the vehicles and a trailer, then paid only a fraction of what he promised. Still another said Dunn picked her PWC up to repair it and she never saw him again.

Dunn is due back in Bantam Superior Court March 31.
