NORWALK, Conn. — A Norwalk man was charge with stealing tools from a local landscaping company mere hours after the theft occurred, according to the Hour.

The theft at the Merritt Place business was reported Tuesday morning, and detectives arrived on scene to investigate, the Hour reported. About $6,000 worth of landscaping equipment had been stolen, along with some copper wiring from a business on the same property, the Hour reported.

After reviewing surveillance video and canvassing a local scrap yard, they were able to identify 51-year-old Hector Serrano-Burgos as a suspect, according to the Hour. They went to his home, where they found some of the equipment and copper wiring, and he admitted to the theft, according to the Hour.
