A Farmington man was charged last Thursday with stealing two pairs of Nike sneakers from a Westport resident in May.
Kevin Jones, 21, of Wannowmassa Road in Farmington, reportedly agreed to meet the person in Westport to buy the shoes from him. Upon meeting the resident, police said Jones saw the shoes, grabbed them and fled in a waiting vehicle.
He was charged with sixth-degree larceny and is scheduled to appear Sept. 9 in Norwalk Superior Court.
