HADDAM, Conn. (WTNH) – Police in Haddam arrested Alex Cruz after a month-long investigation.  On July 3, 2016 Troopers from the Haddam Resident Trooper’s Office and Troop F-Westbrook investigated two separate incidents which occurred during the overnight hours on Turkey Hill Rd. in Haddam. Several items were stolen from unlocked vehicles which included two firearms from one address, and a credit card from another address.

Through the course of the investigation troopers developed information regarding a suspect, and drafted several arrest warrants for the vehicle break-in’s and larcenies.

The accused had recently been arrested and is currently incarcerated in Hartford. The arrest warrants were approved by the Middletown Superior Court and the accused was served today during a court appearance.

Troopers are currently working with other law enforcement agencies to determine if this suspect is connected to any other vehicle thefts, break-in’s and larcenies in Middlesex County during the last month.
