NORWALK, Conn. — Kyle Lyddy, the chairman of independent gubernatorial candidate Oz Griebel’s campaign, has been arrested on a larceny charge.

Norwalk police say Lyddy, 31, of Danbury, was charged after a monthlong investigation with misappropriating $500,000 from the company where he worked. Police did not name the company.

Chris Cooper, a spokesman for the Griebel campaign, said Lyddy resigned on Monday.

Lyddy did not immediately respond to phone and text messages seeking comment.

Lyddy had served until April as the head of the Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial Commission, which was responsible for creating a memorial for the 26 students and teachers who died in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown.

He was released Tuesday after posting a $100,000 bond and is due in Superior Court on Sept. 19.
