A New Milford, Conn., man wanted on multiple warrants, was nabbed by Kent police on Tuesday during a traffic stop on Route 301, according to the Kent police.

Ernest Morrisey, 37, was apprehended when Officer Corey Ashe stopped a vehicle around 5 p.m. on Route 301 for a routine traffic violation, said Kent Chief of Police Alexander DiVernieri.

Morrisey, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was identified after Ashe performed a computer check on the occupants in the vehicle, and found that he was wanted on multiple warrants in Connecticut for probation violations,  DiVernieri said.

He was charged with being a fugitive from justice and is being held at the Putnam  County Correctional Facility until he is extradited to Connecticut.
