SHELTON — A 43-year-old Shelton man who allegedly stole lawn care equipment from a local business has been charged a rash of other commercial burglaries.
The man, Michael Macy, was first arrested in March after police said they matched his pickup truck to surveillance video from a break-in at Bahner Lawn and Forest on Bridgeport.
In a prepared statement, Detective Richard Bango said police developed Macy as a suspect in “a rash of commercial burglaries that Shelton experienced from December of 2017 through March of 2018.”
“During the investigation Shelton Detective learned that Macy was responsible for burglarizing the Wheels gas station on Old Stratford Road three times, JD’s package store on River Road, Andros Liquor store on River Road, AJ’s gas station on River Road and the A&F Mohegan gas station on Mohegan Road,” Bango said.
Macy was charged Thursday with six counts of third-degree burglary, larceny, and criminal mischief and one count of attempted third-degree burglary, Bango said.
He was held on bonds totaling $122,500 and was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at Superior Court in Derby.
