Police on Thursday arrested a 19-year-old Bridgeport man by warrant in connection with 11 thefts from motor vehicles in New Canaan last summer.

The man is accused of committing the larcenies during the overnight hours of July 4, according to a police report. The New Canaan Police Investigative Section processed the vehicles that had been entered and obtained DNA samples for submission to a state lab, the report said.

Investigators also went to a Mobil Station in Bridgeport to obtain video surveillance where the man had used stolen credit cards to purchase items, it said.

Police obtained a warrant for 11 counts of third-degree burglary, four counts of ID theft and four counts of payment card theft.

They served the warrant to the man who already was incarcerated and had been transported to state Superior Court in Norwalk on a separate matter. According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, Bridgeport Police on Jan. 25 charged the man with first-degree robbery-firearm threat.

A judge set bond at $300,000 for the New Canaan charges.
