Waterbury police have arrested two suspects in the burglary at a pizza shop and arrest warrants say Watertown police spoke with the two men in regard to a homicide under investigation there.
Waterbury police have charged 49-year-old Paul Crampton and 48-year-old William Bayarinas with third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny in connection with a burglary at Edgewood Pizza on Jan. 9.
During that burglary, $200 worth of deli meat, bacon and vegetables, $100 worth of pasta and $100 worth of takeout containers were taken from the pizza place, according to police.
The arrest warrants for both men say video surveillance that captured the burglary at Edgewood Pizza shows the suspects leave in a light-colored Chrysler PT Cruiser.
On the same day, Watertown police had broadcast a “pickup” for a Chrysler PT Cruiser that might be connected to a homicide in their town, according to the arrest warrant for Crampton.
The PT Cruiser Watertown police were looking for was later located near Lit Lounge on West Main Street in Waterbury.
Watertown police previously said it belonged to 70-year-old Maryann Kibbe-Stanisz, who was found dead in her home on Bushnell Avenue in Watertown on Wednesday, Jan. 9. The car was missing from the driveway when officers responded to the house to investigate her death.
Kibbe-Stanisz died of blunt impact injuries to the head and neck and police said her death is the first homicide in more than six years.
No arrests have been made in the case.
On Jan. 12, the Watertown homicide investigation police to another address on West Main Street, where they found produce believed to be have been stolen from Edgewood Pizza, according to the arrest warrant Waterbury police obtained for Crampton.
Two days later, Watertown police contacted Waterbury police and told them they were speaking with Bayarinas and Crampton “in regards to a homicide investigation they were conducting,” and Crampton told them he’d been involved in a burglary with Bayarinas, according to the Waterbury arrest warrant for Crampton.
When Waterbury police interviewed Crampton, he told them “Bill,” a man he knew from prison, had picked him up in a silver car, they had stolen bed sheets from Macy’s, sold them, bought heroin, took items from the cooler at the pizza place, sold the bacon to someone and drove to the parking lot of Lit bar, where parked the car, walked to an abandoned building behind Walgreens and went to sleep, according to an arrest warrant.
Watertown police said by email Wednesday that they have no information about the homicide in Oakville, the investigation is active and they can’t comment on it.
