Suspect arrested in burglary and identity theft cases
Police charged 27-year-old Jay Crump Jr., of Bristol, on Thursday, March 23, with two counts of third-degree burglary, two counts of conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree identity theft, two counts of conspiracy to commit second-degree identity theft, two counts of sixth-degree larceny, two counts of conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny, and credit card forgery of signature.
The charges stem from two car burglaries that occurred in the Rivergate Drive and West Meadow Road areas of town during the overnight hours of Dec. 21 and 22.
An investigation revealed that a short time after the car burglaries a victim’s credit cards had been used in Waterbury and Southington. A review of video surveillance revealed Crump as one of the alleged suspects.
Lt. Robert Cipolla told The Bulletin on March 28 the Wilton Police Department anticipates at least two more arrests.
