Man charged with fleeing from cops during theft probe

A man who allegedly fled from police after being questioned about a theft from a local business has been arrested.

Brandon Shail, 34, whose last known address was Coleman Street in Bridgeport, was charged Sunday with engaging in pursuit, operating a motor vehicle while his operator's license was suspended, third-degree criminal trespass and sixth-degree larceny.

Shail was arrested in connection with an incident in April where he led police on a chase after being questioned about a theft from Izzo's Garden Center, according to a police report.

He was held in lieu of a $15,000 court-set bond.
