Bridgeport man charged in July gas station burglary in Norwalk
NORWALK — A Bridgeport man was arrested on Tuesday for his alleged role in a burglary at a city gas station in July, police said.
Terell Hendrick, 26, turned himself in to Norwalk police on Tuesday on third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and third-degree criminal mischief charges stemming from a break-in at the Shell gas station at 551 Main Ave. on July 11.
Officers responded to the gas station around 4:33 a.m. on July 11 on reports of an ongoing burglary.
As officers approached the gas station, a red Ford pickup truck was seen speeding away from the scene. Police tried to follow the car, but the pursuit was eventually terminated.
The car was later found abandoned in Bridgeport.
Police spokesperson Sgt. Sofia Gulino said a warrant was later issued for Hendrick based on evidence found in the gas station and the abandoned car, which had been reported stolen.
Hendrick was held on $50,000 bond and was given a court date on Dec. 3.
