Turns out a Bridgeport man nabbed today for allegedly stealing $125 worth of paint brushes from Westport Hardware has had other brushes with the law, police said.
Robert Ortowski, 38, was wanted in three other towns and had four warrants out for him.
Officers arrested and cuffed Ortowski outside of the former Great Cakes store, 722 Post Road East, shortly after the reported theft at Westport Hardware, 616 Post Road East, police said.
They said Westport Hardware employees provided a thorough description of the suspect.
