NEWINGTON - A former Farmington Town Council member was arrested on interfering with police and harassment charges Friday after a lengthy investigation, police said.

Jonathan Landry, 42, abruptly resigned from his council seat earlier this year after learning of the investigation.

The warrant for his arrest has been sealed by the court for 14 days. Newington police declined to comment based on the sealing order.

Landry was arraigned in New Britain Superior Court Monday morning. He turned himself in to Newington police Friday to be served with a warrant charging him with second-degree harassment and interfering with police. He was released on a non-surety bond.

Speculation has run rampant through Farmington and Newington after Landry abruptly resigned. The investigation was initiated in January after police received a complaint, Newington Police Chief Stephen Clark said. Clark declined to comment on the nature of the complaint today, citing the sealing order.
