North Haven Police: New Haven couple faces robbery charges after striking officer with car


NORTH HAVEN — Two New Haven residents face robbery charges after police say they struck a North Haven officer with a car while fleeing after a theft.

Edward Madden, 41, of New Haven was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery, assault on a police officer, first-degree reckless endangerment, sixth-degree larceny, evading responsibility, disobeying an officer’s signal and reckless driving. Candice Lawrence, 35, of New Haven was arrested and charged with conspiracy to assault a police officer, first-degree conspiracy to commit robbery and sixth-degree larceny.

On Monday night, police say employees at Ulta Store at 370 Universal Drive saw a couple putting items in a bag. Police arrived to find the couple getting in a gray BMW, according to a statement from Lt. Kevin Glenn, North Haven Police spokesman. When officers approached the driver sped off, striking an officer in the process, Glenn said.

The officer was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers were able to identify the suspects in the car from surveillance photos from the store, Glenn said. North Haven police worked with New Haven police department to locate and arrest the two suspects, Glenn said.

Madden was held in lieu of $200,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Meriden Superior Court today. Lawrence was held on $100,000 bail and will also be arraigned in Meriden Superior Court today.
