OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (WTNH) — Old Saybrook police are searching for suspects accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of Legos from Walmart.
According to police, a man and two women stole more than $2,000 worth of Legos from the store. As they were leaving, police said a loss prevention specialist tried to stop them. The suspects got away when the man threatened to shoot the employee.
“We will not tolerate larcenies and shoplifting events here in Old Saybrook,” said Old Saybrook Police Chief Michael Spera.
Police have identified the male suspect as 36-year-old Glenn London, who is also the primary suspect in two other Lego larcenies from the Old Saybrook Walmart in October and November, accused of stealing $3,800 in Legos.
“We’re still looking for the name on one of the individuals, but tips are rapidly coming in this morning and we’re very confident that we’re going to be able to seek arrest warrants for all three individuals,” Spera said.
Walmart released a statement saying, “No retailer is immune from theft, and Walmart isn’t any different. However, we don’t discuss specific details of illegal activity or security situations in our stores. Unfortunately, crime remains an issue in many communities across the country, and we do everything we can to create a safe environment for our customers and associates.”
“They give back to our community significantly, this Walmart, so look, we will do everything we can to keep them safe, keep the shoppers safe, keep the workers safe and to keep them in our community,” said First Selectman Carl Fortuna.
Anyone who knows where he is, or can identify the other suspects, is asked to call the police at (860) 395-3142.
