Connecticut State Police arrested a known car burglar late Friday night after troopers caught him allegedly rummaging through a parked car in West Hartford.
Herman Alexander, 47, of Hartford was arrested and charged with four separate burglaries in the West Hartford area. He was charged with numerous crimes including illegal use of a credit card, burglary, credit card theft and failure to appear.
Police said Alexander was looking in a parked car at a home on Claredon Avenue just after 11 p.m. Troopers located Alexander crossing Interstate 84 and he was arrested in a parking lot on Kane Street.
The West Hartford police have arrested Alexander 12 times since 2007 for similar incidents.
Several items, including a GPS, were seized by police.
Alexander was held on a $70,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Hartford Monday.
