Branford Police say a local resident arrived home early Saturday morning to find a neighbor burglarizing his garage– in the midst of stealing power tools and beer.
When the man called 911, he had the suspect– later identified as Alexander Laudano, 23– by the jacket, up against a garage door, said police.
Laudano is also suspected of burglarizing at least three vehicles in the area before he was caught, according to authorities.
Laudano faces charges of first-degree burglary, and four counts of sixth-degree larceny. He is free on $2,500 bond and due in New Haven Superior Court April 24.
