WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A Waterbury man has been charged with the 2010 theft of an automated teller machine, temporary license plates and registration stickers during a break-in at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/10K1jkM)28-year-old Jose Gonzalez was on parole for several other similar burglaries when he was arrested on Tuesday.

Police say Gonzalez was part of a burglary crew that disabled the alarms at the DMV in January, 2010 before breaking in and stealing plates, stickers and the ATM, which contained more than $24,000 in cash.

The office was closed for two days after the theft.

Police say Gonzalez told them the group burned the stickers and plates, fearing they could be traced.

He was being held Thursday in lieu of $100,000 bond and is due in court next month.
