MONROE, Conn. -- A Waterbury man was arrested on charges of trying to make off with dozens of cans of beer from the Big Y supermarket in Monroe, according to the Monroe Courier website.

Reardon tussled with the employee and fled the scene, the Monroe Courier said.

Shelton officers spotted the suspect’s vehicle heading north on Route 8, and State Police eventually stopped him on I-84 in Waterbury, the Courier said.
