Man accused of stealing beer appears in court
Bridgeport police say they have arrested a man who sawed through the wall of a deli to steal beer.
Police say Rui Rua broke into the Red Rooster on Oak Street early Thursday morning and took a 12-pack of beer.
They say they found Rua shortly after with an open beer bottle, a chisel and a saw.
Police say his car was unregistered and he was using stolen license plates.
The owner of the Red Rooster says it will cost him $8,000 to repair the damage.
A judge set bond at $5,000 and Rua is due back in court later this month.
