Second man charged in New Canaan burglary
NEW CANAAN — A 29-year-old Norwalk man was arrested for the second time in connection with a home burglary.
On Aug. 15 around 5:20 p.m., New Canaan police received a report of a burglary earlier that day at a Smith Ridge Road. The homeowner said all the doors at the house had been locked and found someone had broken in through a window. Several pieces of jewelry — around $1,800 in total — were stolen.
Two days later, Darien police responded to an attempted home break-in on McCrea Lane where the homeowner saw a man try to enter her home through the window. The woman called police and took a picture of the van the man was driving. Using the photo of the license plate, Norwalk police quickly located the vehicle along with two suspects, Marlo Aguirre and Siuni Bonilla, both of Norwalk. Inside the car, they found a distinct piece of jewelry from the New Canaan home that had been burglarized days before.
New Canaan investigators went to Darien to interview the suspects. Both men confessed to the burglary in New Canaan.
As a result, police applied for warrants for both men.
Bonilla was taken into custody Sept. 5.
On Sept. 25, Aguirre was served a warrant in Stamford Court and charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree larceny, and third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary and larceny. Aguirre was processed and held on a $5,000 bond ahead of an Oct. 9 court date.
