In late January, Hamden Police responded to Go On Gas, 144 Arch Street on the report of a larceny.
Officer Jay Bunnell was advised that management hired a “new overnight employee.” During his first solo shift, the store owner utilized an app on his cell phone to view the store cameras. He quickly ascertained that the new employee had left. The store owner immediately responded to the store and ascertained that the new employee had stolen numerous items including lottery tickets, 89 boxes of cigarettes and money. The total loss is valued at $17,183.00. In addition to stealing the aforementioned items, the new employee stole his employment folder, which contained his personal information. Hence, the store owner does not know the new employee’s name.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Jay Bunnell of the Hamden Police Department Patrol Division at (203) 230-4030.
