BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — Bristol native Joseph Saluski is facing larceny charges in two cities after attempting to break into a Fairview Avenue home and, when officers arrived there, barricading himself in the home’s attic.
At 8:47 p.m. on Wednesday night, Bristol police headed to Fairview Avenue along with a K-9 Unit, after a neighbor reported a man was attempting a break-in.
When officers arrived on-scene, they found 41-year-old Joseph Saluski inside. The Bristol local refused to come out, instead retreating further into the house, and ultimately barricading himself in the attic.
Bristol’s Emergency Response Team responded in case Saluski had a weapon, or had found one in the attic. Bristol police say he was eventually captured without any injuries to him or officers.
Saluski was arrested and charged with burglary, criminal attempt at larceny, criminal mischief, interfering with an officer, and possession of burglary tools. Although he was able to post the $30,000 bond, Salusky was released to Hartford police, who held a larceny arrest warrant for him.
