Police have arrested the man accused of breaking into storage units in the basement of an apartment building in Windsor and authorities have linked the case to similar burglaries in Newington.
According to police, Jason Epps, 47, was one of two people to target storage units at the Garden Apartments on Windsor Avenue shortly after midnight Monday.
Police said residents caught the culprits in the act. One suspect drove off but Epps ran from the scene on foot. Residents chased him until Windsor police arrived and took him into custody.
Epps has been charged with third-degree burglary, fourth-degree larceny, criminal mischief, possession of burglar's tools and conspiracy to commit fourth-degree larceny.
Police in Newington are investigating similar burglaries and said they have obtained an arrest warrant for a suspect linked to the Windsor case.
