Police have arrested a suspect in a string of vehicle break-ins in the Stamford and Norwalk areas.
Starting in April of 2018, the City of Stamford experienced a large number of burglaries involving forcibly entered vehicles and removal of rims and tires. One incident, which occurred on a night in July, included seven vehicles having their windows broken and being forcibly entered on Glenbrook Road.
Investigator Rick Vetter worked alongside other members of the Property Crime Unit to conduct overnight surveillances and identify a suspect, 37-year-old Frank Reyes.
Agencies in nearby jurisdictions reported crimes with similar patterns. Stamford Police worked with Norwalk Police to confirm that Reyes was responsible for the series of crimes.
With the assistance of U.S. Marshals, Reyes was arrested in August of 2018 and charged with his Norwalk crimes. While in police custody, Stamford Police and the State Attorney’s office completed five additional arrest warrants.
Reyes was transported to the Stamford courthouse and arrested for the Stamford warrants Saturday, Oct. 26, 2018. He was also charged with a warrant for Failure to Appear. The total bond of the Stamford cases amounts to $330,000.
Reyes’s warrants include three charges and 15 counts in total:
- Third-degree larceny (5 counts)
- Sixth-degree larceny
- Criminal mischief (9 counts)
