A 34-year old man has been arrested and charged in connection with a car break-in in Port Charlotte on Monday.

Dennis Lynn, Jr. was arrested Tuesday afternoon at the Circle K on Tamiami Trail.

As luck would have it for the victim of the break-in, she happened to be in the store the same time as Lynn, and recognized him as the man who broke into her car.

Deputies found stolen items at his home. Lynn also had open charges for possession of a firearm by a felon and grand theft of a firearm.
