Police: Middlefield Man With Lengthy Criminal Record Arrested in Meriden

48-year-old Matthew J. Flynn was pulled over Tuesday by Meriden Police for making an improper turn and now faces multiple charges.


A Middlefield man with a lengthy criminal record was arrested again Tuesday by Meriden Police.

Matthew J. Flynn, 48, of 40 Lake Road, was pulled over by police for making an improper turn and subsequently charged with operating a motor vehicle without insurance and driving an unregistered car, according to a police report.

Flynn's criminal history dates back to at least 2004, court records show.

Flynn was arrested by North Haven Police and Middletown Police on larceny charges for separate incidents in 2004 and later pleaded guilty in both cases, according to records. He was sentenced to two years in prison.

In 2007, Flynn was arrested three times and found guilty of sixth degree larceny in each of the incidents involving Waterford Police, Middletown Police and Connecticut State Police. He also was arrested on drug charges by Willimantic Police that year.

Meriden Police previously charged Flynn in 2008 with driving on a suspended license and he was ordered to pay a $150 fine.

Flynn was arrested in June of 2009 in East Lyme for sixth degree larceny. Court records show he pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to 120 days in prison.

Until Tuesday's arrest, Flynn's latest run-in with the law had been in January 2011, when he was arrested by Wallingford Police for second degree robbery.

Court records show he was sentenced to five years in prison, suspended after one year and three years probation for the robbery.
