A Norwalk man wanted for the November burglary of a car parked in central Greenwich has been arrested by Greenwich Police.
Idris H. Gay, 22, of 1 Walter Ave., Norwalk, was arrested while he was in state Superior Court in Norwalk following his arrest April 9 in Norwalk on a larceny charge.
Norwalk police were called to Stew Leonard’s on April 8 to investigate a suspicious man who was trying to sell a camera outside of the grocery store, Norwalk police said. When police arrived, the man had already made his way across the street to Walgreens. After police spoke with the man, they learned there was an active arrest warrant from the Greenwich Police Department.
Greenwich Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray said Gay is the second suspect charged in connection with the Nov. 30, 2012 burglary of a car from which a laptop computer and personal items were stolen. He said surveillance video obtained from a nearby building helped investigators identify Gay as the suspect. A second suspect, a 16-year-old boy, also was arrested months ago for the car burglary, Gray said.
Gay was charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and interfering with an officer. He posted a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear April 17 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
In Norwalk, Gay was charged with interfering with an officer and larceny. He is accused of fleeing police while in handcuffs as he waited to be put into a police cruiser. Gay was issued a $10,000 bond. He is due in court on April 17.
