Parolee accused of string of Conn. robberies

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Waterbury police have linked a 25-year-old parolee to seven robberies in a few days, beginning with his alleged theft of a late model Audi.

The Republican-American reports that police found Kevin Savage hiding in an attic crawlspace Friday. They say they had coordinates broadcast from a GPS device attached to his ankle.

Authorities say Savage robbed a Cheshire bank, a sandwich shop in Naugatuck, a Watertown gas station and tried to rob a check-cashing store in Waterbury. Naugatuck police said Savage also is a suspect in two other robberies and Waterbury police say he admitted to robbing a gas station.

Savage was arraigned Monday in Waterbury Superior Court, where he was held in lieu of bonds totaling more than $700,000. He was represented by a public defender and didn’t enter a plea.
