A Ridgefield, CT man is facing felony charges after police say he stole property from his former employer.

On April 4, New York State Police arrested 32-year-old Karl Knoche of Ridgefield for burglary in the third-degree, as well as petty larceny.

Police say the arrest came after an investigation found that Knoche allegedly forced illegal entry into his former employer’s Putnam County business building, stealing 10 valve regulated lead acid batteries.

Knoche was issued an appearance ticket, returnable to the town of Southeast Court on April 18, 2019.
