PUTNEY, Vt. — Some 100 recent burglaries in New England and Virginia have been traced to seven people, authorities from Vermont and New Hampshire announced Monday.
Police told WCAX-TV in Burlington that the burglaries took place in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Virginia.
Six are in custody, and police said the burglaries had similar characteristics.
“What really bought us all together were those connections. That they were all typically commercial industrial places, there were similar types of things stolen, similar times of day,” said Vermont State Police Lt. Rick Hopkins.
His remarks were published on a WCAX news story that was posted on Vermont State Police Facebook page.
Police said the case started to crack when Lance Thomas and Christopher Goldschmidt, both 18, were caught breaking into a steak house in Westmoreland, N.H.
Since then, four other suspects--Criscenzo Ruggerio, Travis Noyes, Cody Loewe, and Dillion Lange have also been arrested in connection with the burglary spree.
The burglaries took place over the past year. Police say cash, and in some case guns, were taken from the businesses. The total amount stolen is still being tallied.
Police say a seventh suspect is still on the loose, 21-year-old Logan Critchfield of Walpole, N.H.
“There is always great teamwork, but this is just an exemplary example of how teamwork came together and ultimately helped all the victims in these cases,” said New Hampshire State Police detective Sgt. Joe DiRusso.
All of the six suspects will be arraigned in Vermont Superior Court on March 13. They face a variety of charges including burglary and unlawful mischief.
