There is a reason why police dispatchers ask victims of reported crimes "Any distinguishing marks or tattoos?". The ratio of humans that have someone's name inked onto their cheek to those that do not is pretty vast. Turns out that facial and neck tattoos were key pieces of evidence that helped Troopers from the Connecticut State Police - Troop B in North Canaan apprehend an alleged gas station burglar early yesterday morning.

According to a report from Trooper Pease from the CSP - Troop B, at 12:57 AM yesterday morning (June 6,2022), Troop B received an alarm signal at the Citgo gas station on Rt. 7 / Cornwall Bridge Road in Sharon. Responding Troopers discovered that the Citgo had been robbed. Witnesses described a male suspect, wearing all black, with prominent facial tattoos, fleeing the scene in a dark blue, newer model Jeep Grand Cherokee.

One of the responding Troopers saw a vehicle matching that description on Rt. 4 Westbound in Goshen, and pulled them over. The male operator of the vehicle matched the description that the witnesses gave to responding Troopers, and after further investigation, the male suspect admitted to the crime.

Marcus Awbrey, 31, of Cream Hill Road in Cornwall was taken into custody, and has been charged with 1 count of 6th Degree Larceny, and 1 count of 3rd Degree Robbery. Awbrey was being held on a $2,500 cash/surety bond, and is scheduled to appear in Torrington Superior Court on June 20, 2022.

The World's Largest Arcade is a Day Trip Away Connecticut

I spent most of the 1970's, 80's, and 90's playing coin-operated video games in arcades. I loved it. Did you know that the largest arcade in the world is in New England? It's within a wonderful daytrip from anywhere in Connecticut.
