STATE TROOPERS SOLVE MIDDLESEX COUNTY BURGLARIES
 
   Troughout the months of November 2012 to January 2013, Troopers from Troop F, Westbrook, have been investigating a series of forced-entry, daytime residential burglaries in the towns of Durham, Middlefield, Haddam and Killingworth.  The investigation subsequently produced a description of a small tan pick-up truck, as well as a green, older model sedan, witnessed by neighbors in the areas where the burglaries occurred. 
 
   During these months, Haddam Resident Trooper Enrico Milardo worked in conjunction with Middletown, Cromwell, and Rocky Hill police detectives, who were investigating similar residential burglaries in those towns and cities. Information was shared and subsequently obtained, yielding three male suspects and a female suspect.  The three males were connected with a suspect vehicle, identified as a 1998 Chevy S10 pick-up truck, color tan. The female suspect was connected to a green 1997 Honda Civic. 
 
   Trooper Milardo, with the assistance from Durham Resident Trooper Peter DiGioia, conducted multiple interviews to establish probable cause. It was learned that in many of these burglaries, the suspects used window punches to force their way into homes and pillowcases used to carry jewelry were recovered in suspect’s residence in Hartford.  
 
   Most of the stolen items were sold to drug dealers in Hartford or sold in pawn shops. Multiple arrest warrants were applied for through the State Attorney’s office at Middlesex Superior Court in Middletown.
