Police have announced the arrest of a New London man in connection with the
November burglary of a Groton City church.
At 10:30 Wednesday morning, the Groton City Police Department served an arrest warrant on Jaden Alvarez, 21, in New London Superior Court where Alvarez was appearing on other charges, according to Det. Sgt. Jad C. Bickford.
Alvarez is suspected of breaking into the Groton Heights Baptist Church, 72 Broad St., Groton City on Nov. 22. Police say during the burglary, the church sustained “moderate damage to its interior and several items and a small amount of cash were stolen.”
Alvarez was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and sixth-degree larceny. He was held on $15,000 bond. Police are still investigating the burglary and “additional arrests are expected,” a release from Bickford read.
Alvarez was already in custody for – and in court Wednesday on -- another Groton burglary and a number of break-ins and a home invasion in New London that began in mid-October, including a burglary on Orchard Terrace in Groton.
