New London — A man wanted out of Hopkinton, R.I., was removed from a Shore Line East train and taken into custody Wednesday afternoon in New London, police said.

Damian Reynolds, 18, was wanted out of Hopkinton for allegedly stealing a vehicle and then trying to sell it in Orange, Conn. He was a passenger on the Shore Line East train when it stopped at Union Station, where he was taken into custody by several officers from the New London Police Department and Amtrak Police about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. He was led off the train in handcuffs and placed into a New London police SUV outside the station.

The train stopped for at least 20 minutes and officers went on board to remove the man's belongings. Officers carried a large white cardboard box, a jug of Final Charge antifreeze and a fire extinguisher off the train.

Reynolds, wanted on a larceny warrant out of Hopkinton, was being held in New London and was going to be picked up by the Orange Police Department, which would then turn him over to the Hopkinton Police Department, according to Capt. Brian Wright of the New London police.
