A shoplifter from Home Depot was arrested after 911 calls began coming in reporting a male disrupting traffic on Frontage Road.

On Feb. 9, officers were dispatched to the area of Frontage Road for reports of a male attempting to flag down and enter cars traveling west bound on Frontage Road. The male, later identified as Kevin Kelly, 34, advised motorists that he needed to gain access to their vehicles for a “life or death” matter. Upon officers’ arrival, they spotted Kelly walking along Frontage Road and detained him.

Kelly advised officers that he was “just walking down the street,” but it was later learned that Kelly had just been detained by Home Depot Loss Prevention for attempting to steal two Milwaukee tool sets valued at $900. The tool sets were taken away from Kelly by a good Samaritan in the parking lot prior to Kelly fleeing to Frontage Road. While speaking to Kelly, officers also learned that he had two active arrest warrants out of East Haven and Derby.

Kelly was placed under arrest, handcuffed, and transported to the East Haven Police Department. He was charged with larceny in the fifth degree and breach of peace in the second degree. He was also processed on East Haven’s active warrant. Kelly was held on a $40,000 bond and is scheduled to face a judge on Feb. 11 at G.A. 23, 121 Elm Street, New Haven, CT.
