Authorities said Levelle Shabazz, 22, was sneaking through the front yard of a home on Peck Avenue in West Haven when a neighbor spotted him crouching behind a car and called police.
Officers arrived to find Shabazz armed with a “robbery kit” that included a black pellet gun, two box cutters, a gravity knife, face mask and two pairs of black gloves. Police said Shabazz had tried to get away from the responding officers and threw the pellet gun under a car before he was arrested.
He was charged with carrying dangerous weapons, interfering with police, breach of peace and criminal trespassing.
Police said they believe Shabazz could be connected to other crimes and are continuing to investigate.
Shabazz was held on bond.
