CROMWELL, Conn. (WTNH) – Cromwell Police say they’ve caught the man responsible for several recent car burglaries in the area. Officers arrested Antonio Hill Tuesday. A patrol officer says he noticed Hill walking in the area of Coles Rd. A short distance away, the officer noticed a dome light on in a vehicle parked in a driveway of a residence. As the officer stopped to investigate, the dome light on the vehicle began to dim, indicating it was recently occupied. The homeowner confirmed that nobody should have just been in the vehicle. Other officers stopped Hill a short distance away as he was riding from the area on a bicycle.
A CT State Police K-9 responded to the scene to assist in this investigation. CSP K-9 “Jesse” tracked from the vehicle in question to five other residences where cars were parked on Coles Rd. in the direction the suspect was seen going. “Jesse” continued his track which stopped at Hill.
Hill was charged with eight counts of Burglary 3rd Degree and three counts of Larceny 6th Degree. Hill was held on a total of $9,000.00 bond and was presented at GA-9 in Middletown on 9/20/16.
