Glastonbury police are investigating home burglaries that happened over a period of six months last year and are asking residents who live in the area of Whapley Road off Main Street to check their valuables and see if anything is missing.
At least 15 thefts have been reported in the area and police believe a number of additional homes may have been targeted based on pawn shop transactions in greater Hartford.
Daniel L. Taylor, 30, was arrested last month in connection with the burglaries. Police said he lived on Whapley Road at the time and has been charged with third-degree larceny.
Police said many victims didn’t realize at first that they had been robbed – the burglar took mostly cash and jewelry that was not often worn.
The suspect, who lived on Whapley Road at the time, discreetly entered the homes even though residents told police they had locked their doors.
Residents of the area should check their valuables and do an inventory of their jewelry. If anything is missing, call Glastonbury police at 860-652-4267 or 860-633-8301.
