Several 911 Calls
According to Milford Police, the department received several 911 calls from 285 Seaside Avenue, which were later determined to be made by Wolf.
Once upon the scene, officers found Wolf exiting a vehicle with a GPS device he allegedly took from the vehicle.
Vehicle On Fire
Police then observed another vehicle on fire, which was parked next to the one Wolf had just exited.
Officers report that they later found Wolf in possession of property he had allegedly taken from the second vehicle that was on fire.
Milford Police detectives and Milford Fire Department officials investigated and eventually determined that the second vehicle was intentionally set on fire.
Wolf was taken to an area hospital for an evaluation.
While there, Wolf attempted to feel from officers and resisted their efforts, police said.
He was held on a $50,000 bond.
