Burglary Suspect May Have Hit Other Homes
He is identified as 53-year-old Scot Wills of New Britain.
Police say they responded to a report of a burglary in progress early Friday afternoon, October 19, at a home on Meetinghouse Road, but by the time they arrived the intruder was gone.
A neighbor saw someone run toward the woods behind the home, but a search failed to locate the suspect, so they set up surveillance around a car they believed was his, and they captured him when he returned more than three hours later.
They say he worked for an exterminator, which could have allowed him to come and go without raising much suspicion, and some of the other victims may not know their homes were burglarized.
