South Windsor police have arrested a Hartford man accused of stealing from his former employer to pay for drugs and strippers.
Police started investigating a larceny complaint from local truck repair company in August 2013 and identified Juan Rodriguez, 30, of Hartford, a former employee, as a suspect through surveillance footage.
Police said Rodriguez knew which desks to rummage through and stole $1,500 in cash and coins.
On Thursday, police obtained an arrest warrant, charging him with third-degree burglary and third-degree larceny.
He was held at Manchester Superior Court on $45,000 surety bond and was arraigned later that morning.
