STAMFORD, Conn. — A burglary suspect was caught at a Cove Road market in Stamford by police responding to an alarm, Sgt. Richard Barbagallo said.
A responding officer found the door to La Placita market smashed in just before 2 a.m., and Woodrow Baker, 51, at the door, Barbagallo said. Baker tired walking away from the officer, who had to hold him at gun point and struggle with him to handcuff him, the sergeant said.
The suspect was dressed in all black with black gloves and a black cap, he said. The officer also found two packages of cigarettes on the ground in front of the store, and two unopened packs on Baker, Barbagallo said.
Baker also had four small bags of suspected marijuana, the sergeant said.
Baker, a Stamford resident, was charged with third-degree burglary, a felony; interfering with an officer/resisting, a misdemeanor; possession of less than one gram of marijuana, a felony; and second-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, police said. He was held on $50,000 bond, police said.
