A Stamford, CT, man stole a bottle of pills and loose change from a car parked at a city auto body shop, police said.

Police said Eric Andrade, 46, of Main Street, Stamford, stole the items from a crashed car that was parked at Knight Street Auto that was awaiting repairs.


A worker saw Andrade rifling through the car, which was damaged in a way that wouldn’t allow one of the doors to be closed, police said. When the worker approached Andrade, the man fled toward Wall Street.


Officers working an extra-duty job nearby were able to stop Andrad a short time later.


Andrade was charged with third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny. He was held on $5,000 bond and given a court date of Dec. 6.
