NEWINGTON – Police have arrested a man in a commercial burglary in the early morning hours Wednesday and are trying to identify a second suspect.

Police said they were dispatched around 1:13 a.m. to Prime Storage, located at 350 Alumni Road, after a worker at a neighboring business reported hearing the sounds of power tools. Responding officers said they saw Jack Marrero, 21, of Massachusetts, inside the property of Prime Storage, wearing black clothing and a mask. 

Marrero, police said, ran away from officers and was apprehended after a brief foot pursuit. He had burglary tools with him, police said.

A second suspect, who was also wearing dark clothing, was seen on the property. Police said this suspect ran away and was not located.

Investigators are actively trying to identify the second suspect. Anyone with information has been asked to contact Officer Thibeault at 860-666-8445. 

Police said at least three storage lockers were broken into. 

Marrero faces three counts of third-degree burglary and one count each of second-degree criminal mischief, interfering with officers and possession of burglary tools. He is free on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in New Britain Superior Court on July 7.
