Attempted ATM break-in at Greenwich station ends in arrest

September 24, 2018

GREENWICH — A Bridgeport man was charged with burglary in connection with an attempt to break into an automated teller machine at the Greenwich train station last month.

Devon Pearson, 31, of Wilmot Ave., was booked Thursday after being picked up at Superior Court in Stamford on another criminal matter. Besides the burglary charge, a felony, he was cited with criminal attempt at larceny and criminal mischief.

Authorities said Pearson was aiming to break into the ATM at Greenwich Plaza around 4 a.m. on Aug. 16, when he was scared off by a security guard.

According to an incident summary, “The suspect had fled the scene after unsuccessfully attempting to force entry into an ATM machine. Evidence collected at the scene identified Devon Pearson as the suspect.”

Pearson has other criminal charges on his record, including an arrest on attempt to commit burglary in Stamford late last year.

For the latest charge in Greenwich, bail was set at $150,000.
