VERNON — Police charged a man Sunday morning with burglarizing two Talcottville Road businesses after he was seen fleeing a store into the woods, police said.

Jonatan Garcia-Calzada, 21, is charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny, second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree criminal trespass. He was being held on $50,000 bond and is expected to appear in Rockville Superior Court on Monday.
