New Haven Police have arrested a man suspected in a string of burglaries and larcenies at State Street businesses.
On Thursday afternoon, the owner of a pizza parlor called police when he saw the man he said burglarized his store the week before and police detained him on Pearl Street.
The suspect told police he was “Taron Moore” and gave a birthdate, but police determined that he is Jonathan Leroy Moore, 40, of New Haven.
Police said Moore is a felon who has been convicted 16 times. He is currently on parole out of Waterbury. He was arrested and charged with interfering and criminal impersonation.
After he was arrested, Moore confessed to a burglary at Modern Apizza and admitted to entering Portofino’s restaurant on June 18, but didn’t confess to the theft there, police said.
Detectives are reviewing video surveillance from those burglaries and others.
