In June of this year, the Newtown Police Detective Unit, initiated an investigation into a complaint of approximately $50,0000 worth of artwork that had been stolen from a residence on Currituck Road, while the homeowners were out of town.
As a result of the investigation both Brooke Vazzano, age 27, of Danbury and Cody Delmedico, age 26, also of Danbury were arrested after turning themselves in, earlier this morning, on outstanding arrest warrants.
Both Vazzano and Delmedio were each charged with Burglary Third Degree and Larceny First Degree. Both were released after posting $50,000 bonds.
Detectives were able to identify the suspects as being related to the pet sitter and used the access the pet sitter had including the keys and alarm code to gain entry into the residence where the artwork was stolen.
Most of the artwork has been recovered.
“The detectives did an outstanding job putting this case together including working with the victim to recover the stolen artwork and to obtain confessions from the suspects.”
