MONROE, CT — Police arrested a Bridgeport man on a warrant Saturday, charging him in the theft of a $1,549 jackhammer from Monroe Rental in June.
Hector Feliciano, 31, of 1876 Noble Ave., was charged with fourth-degree larceny and released on $2,500 bond for a Dec. 29 court date.
On June 4, Feliciano rented the jackhammer for one day, but the business said he did not return it. When Monroe Rental contacted Feliciano, he told them he wanted to rent the tool for one week, so the contract was changed, according to the report.
The business reported the theft when Feliciano never returned and paid for the tool. Police officers tried to contact him, but could not find him, so they applied for an arrest warrant that was granted by the Superior Court.
On Saturday, Feliciano was in the custody of the Stratford Police Department and Monroe officers were called to pick him up on their warrant.

Dufour was issued an infraction for failure to obey a traffic signal.
