Police: Suspected burglar stole chain saw, leaf blower


Police in Connecticut say they’ve arrested a man who is accused of stealing landscaping tools like a leaf blower and a chain saw.

East Windsor police officers responded to a local landscaping company for a burglary alarm early Sunday, finding a 29-year-old man wearing a black mask. WVIT-TV reports the man ran off when he spotted the officers and failed to stop despite numerous warnings.

Police say the suspect fell down during the chase and an officer used a stun gun on him when he attempted to get back up.

Investigators say they found a chain saw inside his vehicle that had been reported stolen out of Newington.

The suspect faces multiple charges, including burglary. He is scheduled to be in court Monday.
