Naugatuck police arrest 4th suspect in theft of ATM from market
NAUGATUCK – Police arrested a fourth suspect Monday in the April theft of an ATM from Cindy’s Grocers on May Street.
A landlady called police April 29 after she noticed two of her tenants dragging the ATM up to their second-floor apartment at 58 High St. They ran away and later tried to hide the machine at 17 Bingham St., where 33-year-old Jeffrey Irizarry lives, according to Lt. Robert Harrison, a spokesman for the Naugatuck Police Department.
Irizarry is the boyfriend of Kimberly Merced, who lives at the same address and was arrested the day of the break-in. Irizarry dropped Merced off at the High Street apartment earlier in the evening and helped hide the ATM in his basement knowing it was stolen, Harrison said.
Police charged Irizarry with second-degree larceny and conspiracy at second-degree larceny. He was held on a $7,500 bond to appear Sept. 20 in Waterbury Superior Court.
