SOUTHINGTON — A Torrington man faces charges after police said he stole almost $3,000 worth of tools from local stores last year as part of an organized retail theft ring.
Christopher Main, 39, of Torrington, was charged earlier this month with organized retail theft, third-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny. His bond was set at $100,000 and he is scheduled to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Monday.
Police allege Main and accomplices committed organized thefts of Milwaukee brand tools from Southington Home Depot and Lowe’s locations in April and September. The tools, which were sold online, were valued at $2,945, said Lt. Stephen Elliott, police spokesman.
A warrant for an accomplice is pending, Elliott said.
