A police dog following a trail resulted in the arrest of a 38-year-old New York man in connection with a theft at Patagonia, 87 Post Road East, police said today.
On Friday at about 4:30 p.m. police responded to the store on a report of an active larceny, police said. Two males and two females reportedly entered the store together and one started a verbal disturbance in order to distract store employees, according to police.
One of the males picked up a box of merchandise and ran out the front door. A store employee gave chase and the male dropped the box, which was recovered and brought back to the store, police said.
Officer James Loomer and his dog Koda started a track that lead officers to a man matching the description of one of the suspects, later identified as Andres Rojas of Corona, Queens, N.Y, police said.
