DARIEN, Conn. – A man identified as a suspect in a Darien home burglary last fall in which more than $20,000 worth of jewelry and coins were stolen has been arrested in Florida, police said in a statement Wednesday.
A West Avenue resident reported the burglary in November 2013, according to police reports.
Investigators identified Dirk Lloyd, 36, of Bridgeport as a suspect in the burglary, police said. A search warrant for Lloyd’s home turned up evidence tying him to the Darien burglary and other cases in Fairfield County towns, according to the press release.
Lloyd was arrested in Miami Beach earlier this month as a fugitive from justice and extradited to New York City, where he is also facing charges for burglaries in Queens and Nassau County, N.Y., according to police reports. Investigators believe that the burglaries he has been accused of “matches the pattern of dozens of other burglaries not just in Fairfield County, but in New York,” Darien police said Wednesday.
Police have issued an active warrant for his arrest on charges of third-degree burglary and first-degree larceny relating to the Darien incident. Darien Police are unsure when he will be extradited to Connecticut.
