Wethersfield's police chief was seen taking down a shoplifter on a cruiser dashcam.
The shoplifting suspect tried to get away when Chief James L. Cetran spotted him along the Silas Dean Highway near Maple Street on Monday.
Shortly after, backup arrives to help the chief.
In the video, police said a bag of stolen property was placed next to a planter.
It is not clear what charges the suspect faces or where the items were stolen from.
