Man Charged in Hamden Burglary

Police have arrested a man suspected in a burglary at Cheap Auto Rental in Hamden last summer.

A Hamden police officer responded to the business at 1110 Dixwell Avenue on Aug. 10, 2014 after hearing the alarm go off and saw a man running from the scene. The officer chased him, but the burglar eluded police.

As police investigated, they determined that the burglar forced his way through a garage window and stole money from a cash box, police said.

Police have since obtained an arrest warrant for Marion Mershon, 39, of Canterbury. He has been charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and sixth-degree larceny.

He was held on a $25,000 court-ordered bond and was arraigned later in the day.
