The West Hartford Police Department arrested a suspect in a residential burglary that took place in January after he was stopped by Hartford Police for a traffic violation last month.

Capt. Michael Perruccio said David Santos, 26, of South Whitney Street in Hartford, was charged Sept. 14 for a burglary that had taken place on Warrenton Avenue in West Hartford on Jan. 12, 2019.

“Detectives did a great job following up on this case,” Perruccio said.

Santos had been developed as a suspect, and a judge had granted a warrant, he said.

West Hartford Police took Santos into custody after he was stopped in Hartford, and charged him with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief, and fourth-degree burglary related to the January incident.

He was released after posting $20,000 surety bond on Sept. 15, and is due back in court on Oct. 22.
