Police say that Peter Barone, 42, of East Haven intended to burglarize Krauszer’s on Bridgeport Avenue May 5 when he smashed in the store window.
Barone was arrested on a warrant May 16, charged with attempted burglary and possession of burglary tools.
According to a police report, an officer on patrol May 5 heard breaking glass and checked the area, discovering that a window had been smashed at Krauszer’s, a food and convenience store . The officer reportedly found a man dressed in all black running from the area.
Police then found a vehicle in the vicinity that was running with the keys in the ignition, and they connected that car to Barone. A warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest.
Barone was released from police custody on his promise to appear in court June 16.
