New York Man Accused of Thefts a University of Hartford Dorm

A 21-year-New York man is accused of stealing several laptops and cell phones, as well as other electronics, clothing and cash from several rooms in a dorm, according to a statement from the school.

Daylin Robertson, who is not a student at the university, has been charged with burglary, several counts of larceny, home invasion, possession and sale of marijuana and possession and sale of a controlled substance, according to the school.

Officials said he was visiting during Spring Fling, a three-day festival for students, and was staying with a friend in the Park River apartments.

They said they recovered the stolen items and will get them back to their owners after the police inventory is complete.

Robertson had several drugs on him, including 199 Xanax  pills and "green leafy substance,” according to the affidavit.

Robertson confessed to going into dorm rooms and stealing items, according to court documents, and blamed alcohol and medication for his having a poor memory of the night.

Bond was set at $100,000 and he is due back in court on May 5.

School officials said this arrest is not connected a home invasion on campus early Saturday morning and they are urging students to leave dorm room and apartment doors locked.
