UPDATE A 48-year-old Bridgeport man stole a television from the wall of the Metro-North Westport station early today but was arrested a short time later sitting on the station platform with the TV wrapped in garbage bags next to him, police said.

Keith Bondurant was charged with burglary and larceny and held on $5,000 bond, police said.

Police said “a concerned citizen” notified them at 3:51 a.m.that a bald black male wearing a dark-hooded sweatshirt was stealing a television off of the wall in the station’s New York-bound waiting room.

Officer Howard Simpson responded to the area, confirmed the television was missing, and immediately began a search of the area for any suspects, police said. He located Bondurant sitting nearby on the platform with the television.

The Hour of Norwalk said Bondurant was no stranger to bumbling television thefts.

It said Norwalk police previously arrested him for trying to steal a large television from the South Norwalk Public Library and triggering an alarm in 2002.

He spant 13 months in prison for the crime, according to court records.

Other arrests in Norwalk included one for stabbing two men during an argument with his ex-wife, the newspaper reported.

No trains at 3:50 a.m. Matthew. Otherwise, his plan was flawless . . .
