Suspect in armored car theft captured in Wethersfield, Connecticut


WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) – A Middletown man wanted by the FBI for an armored car heist was arrested in Wethersfield after allegedly presenting forged documents at the DMV Wednesday.

Police say that officers responded to the Department of Motor Vehicles, at 60 State Street, for the report of a person presenting forged documents. The DMV employee told police that a man attempted to get a driver’s license with a forged birth certificate. 

When the officer found the suspect in the hallway, the suspect provided a false name. He was then arrested for forgery and later positively identified as 28-year-old Mark N. Espinosa.

It was then learned that Espinosa was wanted by the FBI for theft of a interstate shipment. 

Wethersfield police worked with the FBI,  which then led to the recovery of a significant amount of cash from Espinosa’s Middletown apartment. 

Espinosa appeared in court Thursday morning and before he was turned over to the FBI.
