The man, who was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, jeans and sneakers at the time of the burglary, ran into "a waiting getaway car," which was white, and headed north on Wolcott Road, where the vehicle almost collided with a tractor-trailer.
Police said the vehicle, which had a stolen license plate, was also used in a burglary at a CVS in Newtown on March 31.
