STAMFORD, Conn. - A 53-year-old Stamford man was arrested on Thursday and charged in connection with a July 2013 burglary at K&L Cleaners on East Main Street, police said.
Albert Louis Pelletier, of no known address in the city, was arrested on a warrant Thursday on charges of third degree burglary, second and third degree criminal mischief and third and sixth degree larceny, according to police.
Back in July, Pelletier allegedly forced open the rear door of the dry cleaners and stole the cash register containing about $120, police said. He allegedly dumped the register, which he pried open to extract the cash, in a park on Cortland Avenue where it was discovered by a park maintenance worker the next day.
Police determined that Pelletier was allegedly responsible for the crime by matching fingerprints on the register to him.
Pelletier was already in state custody on unrelated charges at the time of his arrest Thursday. He was held in lieu of a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Oct. 17. He remains in custody on the unrelated charges.
