Wolcott police arrested a man Wednesday in connection with a bowling alley burglary last year.

Police said Rivera entered the building by cutting a hole in the roof.

A safe was broken into with the use of tools from inside the bowling alley.

Police said Rivera fled the state with a large quantity of cash from the safe.

Rivera was arrested last month in Colonial Heights, VA on a DUI charge. He was later extradited to Connecticut.
