DANBURY -- City police hope recent activity in the Naugatuck Valley leads to the arrest of a man spotted on surveillance video after allegedly breaking into several cars at a Walmart in Danbury in late May.
Danbury Police Officer Matthew Casazza said the man broke into numerous cars in the Newtown Road store's parking lot. From one car, he said, the man took a Sony digital camera, a radar detector and a woman's purse, including a credit card that was inside it.
Casazza said the man then used the credit card at Stop & Shop supermarket across the street from Walmart to purchase a McDonald's gift card.
Casazza tracked the gift card, which remained dormant for a few weeks, but recently it was used in its entirety, he said. It was used at the New Haven Avenue and Division Street McDonald's in Derby, suggesting the alleged thief has a connection to the Valley.
The man has a distinct tattoo on his right forearm that can be seen in the surveillance video, Casazza said.
