Waterford Police Catch Possible Serial Burglar

Scott Tyrone of New London has been apprehended after a slew of daytime burglaries were reported in Waterford.

A New London man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly burglarizing a home in Quaker Hill, and police believe the man may have burglarized at least five other Waterford homes and then sold the stolen items to a Groton pawn shop.

Scott Tyrone, 31 of 615 Bank Street, New London, was charged Wednesday with sixth-degree larceny after a home in Quaker Hill was burglarized earlier that morning. While Tyrone has only been charged with sixth-degree larceny so far, five other Waterford homes have been burglarized in the past two weeks, and a Wednesday Waterford Police press release written by Waterford Police Lt. Jeff Nixon said "further charges related to the companion cases are pending, as the investigation remains active."

Wednesday, in a story on Patch, Nixon warned residents to be vigilant after the town was hit by a slew of daytime burglaries. In the press release, Nixon said Tyrone was captured after he "was completing pawn transactions in Groton," and Groton Town Police assisted in the arrest of Tyrone. Nixon also said police were able to recover a "substantial" amount of stolen property from the burglaries.

Tyrone is being held on $250,000 bond, pending his appearance in court this morning. Any person who has any information on these incidents should call the Waterford Police Department at 860-442-9451.

Does anyone know where these other burglaries were committed?

There was at least two in the area of Pepperbox Road and another off of Cross Road. Police are not releasing all the information as the case is still active, but I'm sure more information will follow.

Humm...taking what you did not earn for your own purposes... Sounds like he had his own little "wealth redistribution" scam....why is that illegal for Mr. Tyrone but is OK (and apparently very popular) for Pres. Obama to do??? Weird...

Please move down south Waterford Rez. You are also probably person that doesn't believe in woman's choice or gay rights. Let's cut all government spending except the grant money that is used for small business. Make sure we have no unions or any over sight on corporations. I get it. Obama allowed this crime and him being elected caused the greatest financial collapse. Something that is so multi leveled that many minds can not understand the magnitude the World was on the brink of collapse.It probably is Obama's fault SS is going to run out or maybe no cure for cancer. He just wants to take care of his 47%. Keep your 2 cents to yourself. Be happy that some hard working police forces have done a great job. This not a political blog. Try going door to door with your rhetoric and find people who will listen. Great Job Groton and WTPD. Ed Roderick

So much for individual freedoms...including free speech. I was just told I don't believe in free choice so move and shut up..........do you see the irony in that statement? How American. Straight from Rules for Radicals by Saul D. Alinsky, the King of Community Organizers: RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. BTW, it was really a tongue in cheek comment...meant more as humor then anything else. Thanks for all the insults though...they were actually pretty good! Thanks for sharing your 2 cents ;) Of course good for the cops for catching this looser....duh Finally, yes, this house of cards is about to collapse...in a way that will make the great depression look like a "bump in the road".

wtfdrez, that alinsky guy seems to have it down pat! the jist of dividing the opposing forces is elemental in many political campaigns even today. sadly, significant strengths of our democracy still depend on retaining divisions of government as checks an balances to overcome the basic human greed and power factors.
