WILTON — A picture came alive for one state trooper when he found a suspect, wearing the same clothes as in a security image, selling gaming equipment while showing the man’s photo to a game store employee.

State Police said Friday Trooper Anthony Dyer went to Game Stop in Wilton to show the employees a security footage image of a man thought to be stealing computer gaming accessories from Walmart.

When Dyer approached the counter to show the employee the image and report what merchandise was stolen, he noticed a customer wearing the same sweatshirt and selling the same items at the counter.

“To his surprise, he was placed under arrest without incident,” a news release from state police said.

Jesse P. Ruggiero, 22, of Wilton, was charged with petit larceny, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance. He is due to appear in Wilton Town Court at 4 p.m Nov. 19.
