A Stamford man has been charged with stealing backpack-style leaf blowers from a landscaping truck.
Jesse Perez, 24, whose last known address was Myrtle Avenue in Stamford, was charged last week with fifth-degree larceny.
Police arrested Perez on a warrant at Bridgeport Superior Court where he was being arraigned on unrelated charges.
Detectives located the stolen items in a pawn shop, according to the report. Police said they determined that Perez had sold the landscaping equipment directly after the reported theft.
He is scheduled to appear on the theft charges Dec. 1 in Norwalk Superior Court.
