Jordan Uliasz, 19, of Southington, has been arrested, suspected in several burglaries in the Curtiss Street area, one on Muir Terrace and vandalism on West Pines Drive,.
A Southington teen accused of a two-day nighttime burglary and home invasion spree in town is also suspected of causing more than $30,000 of damage to new houses and commercial vehicles last year.
In July 2011, five new houses under construction and two construction vehicles on West Pines Drive, a new development of large houses in the suburban community, were damaged.
Graffiti was spray painted inside and outside one house and custom carpentry and countertops were damaged. In other houses, windows were smashed, paint was spilled and holes were made in walls and ceilings.
Police said they have linked Jordan Uliasz to the crimes and they expect to charge another person in this case.
Uliasz has been in the custody of the Department of Correction since being charged in nighttime burglaries/home invasions in the Curtiss Street area while families were asleep.
Days after charging him in connection with those burglaries, Southington Police Department served two additional arrest warrants on Uliasz, charging him with burglary in the first degree, home invasion and larceny in the fifth degree in connection with a nighttime burglary on Muir Terrace in Southington on July 19.
Police said Uliasz entered the residence while the family slept and he stole various items.
When detectives searched Uliasz’s house, they found items taken from the Muir Terrace house, according to a news release from Southington police. The arrest carries an additional court-set bond of $250,000.
Police believe Uliasz acted alone in the burglaries and said additional burglary warrants will be issued for him.
Uliasz was linked to the vandalism on West Pines Drive through forensic evidence, according to a news release from Southington police.
Anyone with information on the burglary or vandalism should call the Southington Police Department Detective Division at 860-621-0101.
