Springfield man arrested in connection with series of home burglaries in Connecticut


A Springfield man is facing multiple criminal charges in connection with a series of burglaries at homes in Connecticut last year. 

Suffield Police Department Captain Christopher McKee told 22News 27-year-old Jarne Jones was arrested on Wednesday and is facing charges including third-degree burglary, first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal mischief, and third-degree larceny.  

Capt. McKee said Jones is still being investigated for his possible involvement in similar unsolved crimes in other areas. 

On April 2, 2018, Windsor Locks Police were called to a home on Cornwall Street in Connecticut after a resident returned home from a week away and found his home burglarized. 

Investigators determined the suspect entered the home from a back door, which was heavily damaged. Police say several items were stolen. 

Over time, other police departments received increasing reports of home burglaries, resulting in thousands of dollars in property and damage to homes.  

Capt. McKee said money, jewelry, guns, and various other items were stolen from homes in Suffield, Enfield, Avon, Newington and Windsor Locks. 

A joint investigation involving police departments from Connecticut and Massachusetts provided positive identifications for multiple suspects. 

Jones was taken into custody on an arrest warrant. He had a $50,000 bond and appeared in court on Thursday. 

No further details were provided.
