Barrington police charged Juan Carlos Orellana Sosa, 33, of Providence, with larceny under $1,500 on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Police said Mr. Sosa was the suspect in an alleged larceny at Grapes and Grains liquor store on July 14.

It is alleged that on that day, Mr. Sosa had purchased a six-pack of Budweiser at Grapes and Grains and was about to leave when he then grabbed a paper bag containing other items, including a bottle of wine, and left the store. The items inside the bag were valued at $32.

The store employee told police the man was tall with his hair shaved on the sides, and got into a white or silver Acura sedan. The vehicle had the word "Blessed" written in large letters at the top of the windshield.

On Sept. 1, an officer spotted a vehicle matching that description and ordered it over to the side of Brentonwood Avenue. Police later charged the driver, Mr. Sosa.
