2 Arrested in Connection to Multiple Residential Burglaries in Southeastern Connecticut

Two men were arrested on Thursday in connection to multiple residential burglaries that occurred across southeastern Connecticut.

Benjamin Huntley, 36 and Michael Rousseau, 21 were arrested on multiple arrest warrants, East Lyme police said. Dt. Mark Comeau of the East Lyme Police Department said that police have been tracking Huntley and Rousseau since September 2015. 

Comeau could not provide NBC Connecticut with an exact number of homes that were burglarized but he believes the investigation will find 30 to 40 homes were hit. Police also think more suspects were involved with the robberies and anticipate more arrests.

The home robberies are still being investigated but East Lyme police said "numerous" burglaries and larcenies have been solved and stolen items recovered. 

Huntley and Rousseau are known to be addicted to heroin, Comeau said. 

This is still be investigated. Anyone with information is asked to contact East Lyme Police at 860-739-5900
