New Milford men charged with illegal hunting

Two New Milford men were arrested by the state Department of Environmental Protection police Wednesday and charged with illegally shooting a deer in Washington last week.

Douglas Cable, 50, of Fordyce Road, and Matthew Larmore, 22, of Bostwick Place, were arraigned in Superior Court in Bantam. Neither man was able to post bond, and both remain in custody pending court appearances next month.

The men are accused of shooting a white-tailed deer in a residential area on Upper Church Hill Road on Nov. 17, DEP spokesman Dennis Schain said.

The men shot the deer, which was on private property, from the road. A neighbor witnessed the incident and contacted DEP police, who obtained warrants for their arrests, Schain said.

Both men were charged with third-degree negligent hunting, accessory to negligent hunting, second-degree reckless endangerment, hunting from a highway, accessory to hunting from a highway, illegal deer hunting, and accessory to illegal deer hunting,

Cable was also charged with hunting under suspension and driving under suspension. His bond was set at $35,000 and his case was continued to Dec. 16.

Larmore's bond was set at $10,00, and he's due back in court Dec. 17.
