Cops link man to '13 Greenfield Hill burglary spree
A Waterbury man was arrested at state Superior Court in Bridgeport last Friday and charged with three Greenfield Hill burglaries from 2013.
Luis Ortiz-Correa, 26, of West Main Street in Waterbury, was charged on three separate warrants with one count of second-degree burglary, two counts of third-degree burglary, one count each of first-degree larceny, third-degree larceny and fifth-degree larceny, two counts of conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary and one count of conspiracy to commit second-degree burglary. He was held on $50,000 bond and arraigned that same day.
According to police, Ortiz-Correa and another man broke into two homes on Congress Street and another on Westport Turnpike on Sept. 27, 2013. At one Congress Street home, they took several thousand dollars worth of jewelry, watches and antique fountain pens, while taking more than $25,000 worth of jewelry from a Westport Turnpike home.
Their third attempt, at the other Congress Street home, was interrupted by the homeowner, who was on the third floor when they broke into the house. They left behind a bag containing a Playstation console and games when the homeowner yelled at them.
