SOUTHINGTON — A Naugatuck man faces charges after police said he burglarized a car at ShopRite and used a stolen debit card to make at least one purchase.
James Michael Young, 36, was charged Monday with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny, credit card theft, illegal use of a credit card, third-degree identity theft, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police responded to ShopRite, 650 Queen St., after an employee went to his car during a break and discovered his wallet and sweatshirt were missing, said police spokesman Lt. Stephen Elliott. Around the same time, the employee received notifications his debit card was used in the area for a purchase of about $204. Police reviewed security video and identified Young as the suspect.
Young was located at the Motel 6 on Queen Street and taken into custody. He was also found in possession of drug paraphernalia.
Young’s bond was set at $25,000.
