Alleged East Hampton Wire Thief Charged With Skipping Court

Town resident Michael Poe faces six counts of a failure to appear after police said he didn't show up to court last month for his larceny case.

An East Hampton man already facing a laundry list of criminal charges including burglary and larceny was arrested again this week after skipping his court date last month, police said.

Michael C. Poe, 37 of 88 Main St., Apt. 1, was due to appear in Middlesex Superior Court on Aug. 30 where he has multiple cases pending in connection with theft of copper wire from utility poles in late 2011.

Poe and accomplice Troy McIntosh, 28, following an investigation into the thefts.

In typical situations, when a defendant doesn’t show up for his or her court date the judge will order a re-arrest warrant, charging that person with a failure to appear.

East Hampton police picked up Poe on Sept. 5 charging him with four counts of first-degree failure to appear, as well as two counts of second-degree failure to appear. All are felonies punishable with jail time and fines.

Poe has a criminal record in Connecticut stretching back to 2009.
