NEWINGTON, Connecticut (WTNH) – Burglaries plague the Hartford suburbs. We are told that there were several others in Newington that weekend. One of the suspects left a large clue on the surveillance cameras.
Surveillance cameras have become so commonplace lately and the police have told us they are helping catch law breakers.
A video posted on News 8 by a landscaping company in Newington shows that items have been stolen from their vehicles in the company parking lot twice in the past five days.
Among the stolen items is a drone worth about a thousand dollars.
The company’s owner told News 8 that police told him the blue Mercedes in the East Hartford video was stolen and used in other thefts in Newington.
On the way back to the getaway car, the camera took pictures of one of the suspects, which clearly showed a prominent tattoo on the left forearm.
