MERIDEN — A city man faces charges after police say he stole a wallet from a car and used a credit card to purchase $54 worth of merchandise at a local dollar store.

Vincent Curcurato, 32, of 45 Tremont St., was charged by warrant Tuesday with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and identity theft.

On Aug. 22, a man reported his wallet was stolen from his car while parked in his driveway. The man’s credit card company informed him his card was used at the Family Dollar on West Main Street for a $54 purchase, according to a police report.

The victim obtained surveillance video showing a man making the purchase with his credit card and turned it over to police. A short time later, the man called police to report the suspect — later identified as Curcurato — was on Lewis Avenue. When police spoke with Curcurato he denied being involved in the burglary.

Police noted Curcurato was wearing the same clothing as seen in the store security footage.

Curcurato was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday. The judge set bond at $2,500 and continued the case to Oct. 16.
