Vincent Colavito, 24, of Brewster Street, Bridgeport, was charged Tuesday in connection with two separate shoplifting incidents earlier this year.
Colavito, who surrendered at Police Department headquarters on the outstanding warrants, was charged with sixth-degree larceny for a Jan. 29 incident at Super Stop & Shop, 760 Villa Avenue. According to police, Colavito returned about $30 worth of Dove's Men's Moisturizer and then went to the cosmetics aisle and put the same items into his coat and walked out of the store without paying.
Colavito is also accused of joining another man in stealing three cameras, valued at $489, from BJ's Wholesale Club, 40 Black Rock Turnpike. In that case, he was charged with sixth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny.
In both cases, Colavito was released on a promise to appear May 14 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
