A 65-year-old Connecticut woman was arrested for tagging several locations with graffiti that referenced socialism, President Joe Biden, and the “United States of China.” 

WFSB reports that Emily Winters turned herself in last week after a superior court arrest warrant was issued. She is facing the charge of criminal mischief.

On January 12, Winters tagged the walls of a TJ Maxx, the Tunxis Hill Corner Plaza, and on the driveway of the McKinley Elementary School. The graffiti was first reported by a member of the Department of Education the following day.

Investigating officers were able to identify Winters through several tips. She confessed to the crimes when questioned by investigators. 

“It’s our continued partnership with our community that allows the successful resolution in many of our cases,” Lt. Antonio Granata said.

Winters is scheduled to appear in court on February 12.

‘Impossible to trace.’ Tech savvy dad may be holding daughter captive in WA, cops say





A father accused of kidnapping his teenage daughter 17 months ago could be holding her captive in Washington, but his technology skills are making it hard for authorities to find him, officials say.

Authorities say John Oliver Westbrook kidnapped his daughter, Daphne Westbrook, 17, in October 2019 from Chattanooga, Tennessee, according to a news release posted on Facebook by the Hamilton County District Attorney’s Office in Tennessee.

Investigators say Westbrook is holding Daphne against her will and they’re struggling to locate them because he is “an IT expert specializing in security, block chain technology and bitcoin.”
