    Watertown police are searching for the man accused of stealing from a liquor store and automotive sound system store in Watertown this spring.

    Police have a warrant out for the arrest of Arthur Lee Wright, 55, of Waterbury, charging him with burglary and larceny.

    He’s accused of stealing more than $600 worth of stereo equipment from B&C Installation, at 1101 Main Street in Watertown, on April 4, then stealing alcohol from the Davis Street Package Store on April 23.

    Surveillance footage shows a suspect, identified as Wright, wearing a brown sport jacket and tan dress pants during both incidents, according to police.

    Wright was arrested for shoplifting at the liquor store on May 28 and charged with sixth-degree larceny. Last week, police obtained a warrant charging him with third-degree burglary and fifth-degree larceny in connection with the B&C burglary.

    Police are still trying to track him down.

    Officers also arrested 55-year-old Walter Spencer, of Waterbury, in relation to the burglary at B&C.

    Police served the arrest warrant while Spencer was in Department of Corrections custody for an unrelated incident. He’s charged with third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny and his bond was set at $95,000.

    Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Watertown police at 860-645-5200 or Crimestoppers at 860-945-9940.
