Man Stole Leaf Blower From Business, Found With Stolen Chainsaw: Police

East Windsor Police have arrested a man who is accused of stealing a leaf blower from a landscape business early Sunday morning.

Officers were called to Beebe Landscape Services on Winkler Road for a burglary alarm around 12:49 a.m.

As an officer was checking the property, he observed 29-year-old Nicholas Ruvolo, of Enfield, wearing a black mask at the back of one of Beebe's vehicles.

According to police, when Ruvolo saw the officer, he ran though the parking lot and into a wooded area. Despite numerous warnings, Ruvolo failed to stop. Shortly after, he fell. As he attempted to get back up, the officer deployed his taser and took Ruvolo into custody.

Investigators said Ruvolo had triggered an alarm by entering one of the trailers and removing a leaf blower.

Officers said they found his vehicle nearby on Mourning Dove Trail. Inside of his vehicle, police found a chainsaw that had been reported stolen out of Newington.

Ruvolo is facing charges including burglary, larceny, criminal trespass, possession of burglar tools and interfering with a police officer. He was held on bond and is scheduled to be in court on Monday.
