Sonny Muscato, 29, of Hopkins Street, was arrested on stolen property and other charges after a short foot chase on Avondale Place early Saturday. The suspect was taken into custody about 3 a.m. shortly after a truck owner reported Muscato allegedly vandalized two pickups.
Muscato was captured in a yard in the first block of Avondale. He was charged with third-degree grand larceny, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and third-degree criminal tampering. Officers reported he was already wanted on a City Court warrant and had $8.53 in allegedly stolen funds.
