Meriden Man Faces Charges in Watertown Plow Truck Thefts

Watertown police have arrested a man in connection with the theft of two plow trucks in February.

Angel Perez, 46, of Broad Street in Meriden, was charged with first-degree larceny, first degree criminal trover, first degree criminal mischief and conspiracy.

Police said on Feb. 10 two trucks were stolen from Evergreen Lawn and Landscape Maintenance in Watertown. The trucks were found in North Haven and Meriden stripped of plows, sanders and electronic equipment. The damage made the vehicles unusable.

According to police, investigators uncovered forensic evidence in one of the trucks that linked Perez to the crime. Police said Perez has a criminal history and has an arrest warrant out of North Branford for motor vehicle theft.

Perez was held on a $75,000 bond and arraigned in Waterbury Superior Court Friday.

The investigation is ongoing and police believe there are more people involved in the theft.
