NORWALK, Conn. — A Bridgeport man was charged with robbing a liquor store after smashing a rock through the store’s front door last year.
David Dagley was arrested on a warrant stemming from an incident Oct. 28 when officers responded to a motion sensor alarm at Cranbury Wines & Liquors, which is located at 24 Chestnut Hill Road, police said.
Upon arrival, officers found the front door had been smashed with what appeared to be a large rock, police said. The rest of the store’s perimeter appeared to be secure, police said.
Responding officers also found packages of cigarettes on the store’s floor near the cash register, police said. A witness said she saw two people leave the store with a bag of items and flee in a ruby red pickup truck with no rear license plate, she told police.
The witness could not tell whether the suspects were male or female because they were wearing hoods, police said.
Police did not say how they connected Dagley with the robbery, but a police official said detectives had been investigating the incident.
Dagley was charged with third-degree burglary, conspiracy, fourth-degree larceny, third-degree burglary, and third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, police said.
His court date was Feb. 11, and his bond was set at $15,000, police said.
