A wanted fugitive from justice was nabbed by Putnam County Sheriff's deputies during a routine traffic stop in the Town of Southeast, according to Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley Jr.

Deputy Daniel Meury was on patrol on Thursday around 7 p.m., on Route 22 in the Town of Southeast, when he saw a vehicle make a turn, without properly signaling, into the parking lot of Heidi’s Inn, located at 1270 Route 22.

Meury stopped the vehicle and after an investigation discovered that the driver, 56-year-old Philip J. Nichols, had a suspended driver’s license and the passenger, 42-year-old Dawn Anne Gonzalez, had a warrant, out of Danbury, issued by the Connecticut State Superior Court.

The deputy contacted the Danbury Police Department who confirmed they would extradite Gonzalez, who was wanted on two counts of larceny.

Gonzalez was arraigned on the fugitive warrant and remanded to the Putnam County Correctional Facility. She waived extradition and on Monday, was picked up by the Connecticut authorities.
