Shelton Police Department arrested Jonathan Rodriguez, 22, of Derby on Aug. 24 on an arrest warrant, charging him with theft of a firearm. Rodriguez posted a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Derby Superior Court on Sept. 3.

The arrest stems from a complaint of a stolen handgun from a locked vehicle in the spring of 2014 on Canal Street in Shelton.

Subsequent investigation revealed the gun was sold to a local gun store which was traced back to Rodriguez, police said.
