North Haven man charged with stealing  $42K worth of tools, equipment



NORTH HAVEN — A local man faces charges after police said he stole over $42,000 worth of tools from a hardware store by claiming to be a representative of a local construction company. 

Salvatore Delucia, 62, of North Haven, was charged April 26 with first-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny. 

Delucia made fraudulent transactions at a local hardware supply store on Sackett Point Road, falsely claiming to be a representative of a local construction company, according to police. The investigation found Delucia billed over $42,00 worth of tools and other items to the company’s account in the fall of 2018. 

Delucia was released on $10,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on May 9.
