SOUTHINGTON — A Waterbury man has been charged after police said he and an accomplice stole six activity trackers from Target in March. 

Carlos Gonzalez, 26, of 804 East Main St., Waterbury, was charged May 17 with fourth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit fourth-degree larceny. 

Gonzalez and Marlene Rivera, 21, of Bronx, New York, entered Target, 600 Executive Blvd., on March 17 and reportedly removed six Fitbits from a shelf and left the store, said police spokesman Lt. Stephen Elliott. Each Fitbit was valued at about $300.

Gonzalez was released on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on June 4. 

Rivera was charged in April with fourth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit fourth-degree larceny. She later pleaded guilty to fourth-degree larceny and was sentenced to 30 days in prison.
