Surveillance cameras catch burglars in Stamford home
STAMFORD — Surveillance cameras in a home under construction led police to arrest two young men for breaking and entering in Waterside Thursday evening, police said.
Sgt. Brian Butler said 911 dispatch received a call from a homeowner on Davenport Drive at 9 p.m. reporting that two men were in his house. The man told dispatchers that he was not in the home at the time but was watching the two men burglarizing the house via a security system that had surveillance cameras inside his home.
Officers arrived and surrounded the home before sending officer Logan Pavia and his K-9 Pyro to the open rear door. Pavia announced that the two should exit the house otherwise he would be sending Pyro in to get them, Butler said.
Pavia heard sounds coming from the second floor and repeated himself. After the second announcement, two men came down the stairs with their hands up and they were taken into custody without incident, Butler said.
Aaron Humphries, 20, of Burwood Avenue, and Doudly Pierre, 20, of Noble Street, were charged with second-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. They were released after signing promises to appear in court.
