Most folks know the phrase "buyer beware." But what about "seller beware?"
On Friday, June 22, the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Environmental Conservation Police arrested a 20-year old Waterbury man on charges of second degree robbery and second degree larceny in connection with an incident that took place in the parking area of Osbornedale State Park in Derby.
Daniel Stennett, of 2877 North Main St., Waterbury, was being held on a $10,000 bond, after being arrested in his home at around 2:30 p.m. by EnCon police with assistance from the Waterbury Police. A second suspect is still at large and being sought by EnCon Police.
EnCon Police and Derby Police had responded to a report of a robbery occurring in the parking area of Osbornedale State Park, Derby shortly after 11 a.m. this morning.
The victim of the robbery told police he had gone to the park to sell a computer to a person he had been in contact with over the Internet. Upon arriving in the park the victim was allegedly approached by Stennett and one other individual. Stennett allegedly threatened the victim by claiming that he had a knife while the second individual allegedly took the computer. Both Stennett and the second individual then fled on foot.
Derby Police as well as witnesses at the scene provided information that led to the identification of Stennett. The computer allegedly taken from the victim was recovered.
Stennet is being held at State Police Troop L.
