Darien Police Arrest Suspect in Residential Burglary



    Philip Michael Rivera is accused of breaking into a house in Darien.

    Darien police have arrested a Bridgeport man accused of breaking into a Darien home, ransacking it and stealing jewelry and electronics.

    A Noroton Avenue resident called police after 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, after returning home and discovering the house had been ransacked and reported it to police. 

    The investigation led police to a hotel in Milford, where the stolen items were recovered, police said. 

    Darien police arrested Philip Michael Rivera, 27, of Bridgeport, and charged him with third-degree burglary, third-degree conspiracy to burglary and fourth-degree larceny.

    Police said Rivera has a lengthy criminal record for similar types of crimes. 

    He was unable to post the $25,000 bond and appeared in court on Tuesday. 

    Darien police said determined that this burglary was not related to another reported burglary earlier in the day on Weeds Landing in which other individuals were charged.
