Police Search for Gas Station Robbery Suspect

Glastonbury Police Department

Carl Irizarry, 22, is accused of trying to rob the Glastonbury Global gas station with an Airsoft gun in January. Police are asking for help in finding him.

Police are searching for the man accused of trying to rob a Glastonbury gas station with an Airsoft handgun in January.

Carl Irizarry, 22, reportedly entered the Global gas station at 2997 Main Street in Glastonbury on Jan. 20, fired the Airsoft gun and tried to grab money from the cash register, police said. Authorities said a gas station employee prevented him from taking any money.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Irizarry charging him with criminal attempt to commit first-degree robbery, criminal attempt to commit second-degree larceny and brandishing a facsimile handgun.

He was due in court March 5 on unrelated drug charges and failed to appear, police said. Warrants for that arrest were reissued, and police are actively searching for him.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Glastonbury police at 860-633-8301 or call Sgt. Michael Furlong directly at 860-652-4263. Police said callers can remain anonymous.
