Police in Hartford said they arrested a man wanted for burglarizing the construction site of the Yard Goats baseball stadium.

They said they identified the suspect as 39-year-old Felix Leon, a convicted felon.

Leon was charged with criminal attempt at burglary, third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief, third-degree larceny, second-degree larceny and third-degree criminal trespass.
