Groton — City police on Monday arrested a 34-year-old man who they say was stealing items from unlocked cars on Grove Avenue around 6:25 p.m.

With the help of Groton Town police, a state police K-9 unit and with information they received from a citizen, police tracked Bryan J. Chartier down in the vicinity of South Pleasant Valley Road and Walker Hill Road.

Chartier, of 99 Grove Ave., was charged with two counts of third-degree burglary and two counts of sixth-degree larceny. Chartier had with him items stolen from two cars reported to have been broken into, police said.

Chartier was held in lieu of a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in New London Superior Court today.

The NRA has proposed stationing an armed officer in every U.S. school as a way to defend against mass shootings like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Do you support the NRA's proposal?
Yes, it's a sensible plan. An armed officer would serve as a deterrent and he or she would be able to stop an active gunman before more lives were lost.

No, I'm disappointed the NRA didn't come out with any serious suggestions.

Armed officers would help, but we also need stronger gun control laws.
