GREENWICH — Police apprehended a suspect who allegedly stole hundreds of dollars of e-cigarette cartridges from a local gas station this summer.

On Wednesday night, according to the arrest report, an officer finishing up a traffic stop spotted Brown and apprehended him. The officer knew him from “previous interactions” and was aware of the active warrant, according to the arrest report.

Brown was also cited with possession of marijuana, after police said he was found with a bag of cannabis in his possession.

He was charged with fifth-degree larceny, the charge involving thefts between $250 to $500 in value.

Bail was set at $10,000.
