MARIN CO. (KRON) — A former New York City police officer will be arraigned on felony stalking charges involving a Fairfax woman in Marin County Superior Court on Wednesday morning.
Anthony Vincent Falco, 52, is charged with nine misdemeanor charges of violating an emergency protective order and two felony counts of stalking.
Fairfax police arrested Falco last Thursday in Larkspur after he showed up at a Kentfield flower shop where he was buying flowers for the alleged victim, according to Fairfax police Chief Christopher Morin.
Falco still lived in Clifton Park, New York, but he traveled to Marin County several times to pursue his infatuation of a woman who ended their dating relationship in March, Morin said.
Falco allegedly called and emailed the woman, left gifts at her door and visited her in violation of an emergency protective order.
Fairfax police arrested Falco on April 2 for trespassing, and on April 8 fir violating the protective order.
Police arranged for the Kentfield florist to contact them if Falco ever returned to buy the woman flowers. When Falco showed up on Thursday, the florist told him to return later. When Falco returned later, police were waiting for him, according to Morin.
Morin said he followed Falco to Larkspur, where he was arrested on a $300,000 warrant dating back to April.
