STAFFORD SPRINGS, Conn. (WWLP) – A license plate reader helped Connecticut State Police recover a U-Haul truck stolen from Monson this past Spring.
Connecticut State Police said a trooper was on patrol near Simon Says Pawn Shop on West Stafford Road in Stafford Springs over the weekend when the license plate reader on the cruiser detected a stolen U-Haul box truck at the business. Troopers waited for the driver to come out of the business and enter the truck.
According to the State Police, they determined Adam McGrath, 31, of Monson, rented the U-Haul on a one-day rental agreement in May of 2016 and never returned the truck.
McGrath was held on a $2,000 cash bond. He’s scheduled to be arraigned on a larceny charge in Rockville Superior Court Monday, October 24th.
