Police: Man arrested in Meriden for allegedly stealing from cars


MERIDEN – A man was arrested Wednesday after police say he was found stealing items from cars.

Jason Santos, 23, of Wethersfield, was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree larceny, having weapons in a motor vehicle and second-degree criminal trespassing.

Sgt. Darrin McKay said around 3 p.m. police received an anonymous report that a man was rifling through cars on Clearfield Drive, taking items from cars and putting them in his car.

When officers searched the area they found Santos hiding in a vehicle.

During a search of Santos and his vehicle, police found a motorcycle helmet, a motorcycle racing suit, smartphones, a Garmin GPS, sunglasses and cell phone chargers, McKay said.

After Santos was taken into custody, he was sent to a hospital to be checked for a potential medical problem, McKay said. Police charged him after he was released from the hospital. Bail was set at $150,000. Santos is scheduled to appear in court July 9.
