Police have arrested a man who used an ax to break into a Connecticut military museum.
Middletown police announced Thursday that Isaiah Nemecek, 22, faces third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny, and other charges in connection with a break-in Tuesday night at the Greater Middletown Military Museum.
Surveillance video posted on Facebook shows a hooded and masked person swinging the ax several times at a rear door lock mechanism to break into the museum.
Museum officials said the suspect took a replica .45 caliber automatic pistol from a Vietnam War display. Police say an item from the museum was recovered.
Nemecek, a Middletown resident, was also connected to another burglary at a home the same night as the museum break-in.
He was held on a $100,000 bond. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
