A Bridgeport man was charged last week with stealing a bicycle from the Saugatuck Railroad Station, a theft police said appears to be linked to similar crimes in the area.

George Lopez, 54, of Prospect Street in Bridgeport was charged May 18 with fifth-degree larceny when he was served a warrant by police while appearing at Superior Court in Norwalk.

The theft took place May 28 of last year, police said, and Lopez was charged after police detectives probed in the incident in conjunction with police in other communities that had experienced similar larcenies.

Bond was set at $1,000 and Lopez is scheduled to appear in court May 28 on the new charge.
