WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTNH) – 2 people are facing charges after a burglary at a Willimantic gas station on Saturday.

According to officials, around 1:00 a.m., units responded to the A-1 Gas Station at 1601 West Main Street.

After their arrival, they found that forced entry was made into the business and that it was burglarized.

Police then developed a suspect after reviewing surveillance footage.

Around 1:10 a.m., officers located a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot on Cantor Drive. The vehicle, occupied by Anthony Cannon, had been reported as stolen. Cannon was then arrested.

Later that morning, officers located the suspect from the burglary, Ray Anderson, walking on Main Street.

Police said he matched the description of the suspect and was still wearing the same clothes from the burglary.

Officials said Anderson resisted arrest and led police on a foot pursuit despite twice having a stun gun used against him.

He was eventually taken into custody.

Police said Anderson lied about his identity and also violated a probation arrest warrant.

During the investigation, officers learned that Anderson and Cannon were working together on the burglary and on a crime spree.

Both are facing several charges and were each issued $150,000 bonds. They are both scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 5th.
