NEW CANAAN, Conn. (WTIC) -- Details are emerging from the arrest warrant for the estranged husband of a missing New Canaan woman and his girlfriend on charges of evidence tampering and hindering prosecution.

Police were seen Tuesday morning investigating a trash plant in Hartford. K9s were also at the scene.

Police have asked residents with home surveillance video systems to check their footage from Wednesday, May 22 to Saturday May 25, to save any video that captures “vehicular activity” and to contact police, to assist in the search for Jennifer Dulos.

According to the arrest warrant, during a check of Jennifer Dulos’s residence in New Canaan, police located several stains on the garage floor and on a vehicle parked in the garage which had the appearance of blood stains. Based on crime scene processing, investigators came to the consensus that a serious physical assault had occurred at the scene and that Jennifer Dulos was the suspected victim.

State Police found a large quantity of physical evidence in the garage area and inside the home, at 69 Welles Lane, New Canaan. According to the warrant, stains on the garage floor tested positive for human blood with multiple areas of suspected blood spatter. The warrant said there was evidence of an attempt to clean the scene.

According to the warrant, the day after Jennifer Dulos was reported missing, her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, went to the New Canaan police Department with his attorney. Police seized his iPhone. But, to date, Dulos has declined to cooperate with the investigation. An arrest warrant said Troconis has refused to cooperate with investigators.

According to the warrant, Fotis Dulos’ cellphone traveled back and forth between two properties he owns in Farmington throughout the day on May 24, which is when his estranged wife went missing. At 7:10 p.m., records show his phone and his girlfriend's traveled to area of Albany Ave, Hartford. Police and fire departments searched that area for evidence on Friday.

New Canaan authorities announced Sunday the arrests of 51-year-old Fotis Dulos and 44-year-old Michelle Troconis. Both were detained on $500,000 bond in Norwalk Superior Court. Troconis posted bond at $500,000 and was released Monday.

Prosecutors said they expect to file additional charges.

The FBI was also searching Waveny Park on Monday.

Fifty-year-old Jennifer Dulos went missing May 24 after dropping her kids off at school. Police have already searched locations in several towns, including a park in New Canaan where Jennifer Dulos's vehicle was found.

Jennifer and Fotis Dulos have been embroiled in a contentious divorce and child custody case for the past two years.
