SOUTH WINDSOR — A local man was arrested Monday on multiple charges, including vehicle theft and making bomb threats, according to the South Windsor Police Department.

Joshua A. Sage, 41, of Windsor, was taken into custody on three active arrest warrants.

Police say in early March, Sage was discovered unconscious in the driver’s seat of a vehicle that had been stolen from Courtesy Auto on 1265 John Fitch Boulevard.

The vehicle was significantly damaged during the theft.

Authorities also found a crack pipe inside the vehicle, and Sage was driving with a suspended license and an incorrect license plate.

In a separate incident later in March, Sage allegedly threatened to detonate an explosive at the Tyler Regional Animal Care Shelter and made physical threats against a town employee.

The altercation reportedly stemmed from Sage’s dog being quarantined after it bit an officer during the earlier vehicle theft incident.

Sage was processed and held on a $10,000 surety bond.

He is scheduled to appear in Manchester Superior Court today at 9 a.m. If released on bond, he must appear in Norwich Superior Court on May 9 for a Failure to Appear warrant.

The South Windsor Police Department urges anyone with further information to contact their offices or Cleverdon directly.
