ENFIELD, Conn. – A Connecticut-based paranormal investigator charged with felony theft denies that he failed to return a $2,200 thermal imaging camera he used during investigations to its owner.
Twenty-seven-year-old Matthew Kondracki of Enfield is scheduled to appear in Superior Court next Tuesday on a third-degree larceny charge, which carries one to five years in prison upon conviction.
The Journal Inquirer newspaper reported Thursday that Kondracki, an investigator with the Enfield Paranormal Society, was arrested Monday after a woman, whom police didn't identify, complained to authorities.
Kondracki told The Associated Press the woman was the organization's manager and bought the camera for the group. He says she was the last person to see it before it disappeared in November.
