Detective George Taylor said the theft occurred Aug. 10 shortly before 10 p.m. at the BP gas station at 1510 Post Road East.
The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s or early 30s with a muscular built and bald head.
A surveillance video showed the suspect entered the store, purchased a pack of cigarettes, exited the store and then placed the bear into his vehicle, Taylor said.
The vehicle appears to be a newer model Jeep Cherokee, white in color, and no vehicle plate was visible on the video, Taylor said.
The statute of the bear was described as approximately 3 to 4 tall, weighing approximately 75 to 100 pounds, and is valued at $600.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Taylor at (203)341-6080.

I can hear his defense now….“I thought they were still running the ‘Free Bear with Every Pack of Cigarettes Purchased Promotion’.....My Bad, Sorry!”
I can’t bear it!! All these grizzly crime statistics. Obviously the guy was bi-polar. I’m going into hibernation.
John, you are right to hibernate….so much panda—monium in town!
He made a real boo-boo. The appropriate sentence would be Yogi class.
