Three men suspected of committing numerous crimes throughout the area, including the home invasion in August on Ponus Ridge Road, were apprehended on Wednesday by a law enforcement task force, which included the FBI, according to New Canaan police.
Paul DiBiase, 57, and Daniel DiBiase, 55, of Poughquag, N.Y., and Jason Foskey, 34, of Stormville, N.Y., were brought into custody in Harrison, N.Y., which is about 20 miles down the Merritt Parkway from Ponus Ridge Road.
One of the suspects was shot by a Harrison police officer during their apprehension. Harrison police made a planned stop of the suspects' Chevrolet Blazer, according to a press release from the Harrison Police Department, at about 6:40 p.m. as it exited Interstate 287 eastbound onto Westchester Avenue. During the stop, two shots were fired, one of them hitting Daniel DiBiase, who was transported to and admitted into Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, N.Y.
They were wanted in connection with a Sept. 3 burglary in Harrison in which $500,000 in jewelry was stolen and an attempted burglary of another residence in Harrison. The men were charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree attempted burglary, but additional charges are anticipated.
The New Canaan police said they expect formal charges to be made against the men in connection with the home invasion on Ponus Ridge Road in August and one in 2011, as well as other burglaries in town. The Harrison police said the men are also suspected of numerous burglaries in the New York metropolitan area.
According to New Canaan police, "The arrests were made as a result of an intensive and lengthy investigation by a task force comprised of numerous local and state law enforcement agencies as well as the FBI."
The home invasion at 1081 Ponus Ridge Road occurred on Saturday, Aug. 4, at around 10 p.m. The owner of the house was tied to a chair and reported feeling a "hard metal object on the back of his head," according to police. The thieves took about $14,000 in silverware and $200 in cash from the home, said police.
Paul and Daniel DiBiase are brothers and have a history of arrests for burglary and other crimes, according to the Harrison police.
