Police track down burglars


GROTON — Two New London men were caught red-handed in an attempted burglary Feb. 22.

Jacob W. Matzdorf, 19, and Andrew T. Maynard, 21 were charged with: conspiracy to commit 3rd-degree burglary; 3rd-degree burglary, 5th-degree larceny, 3rd-degree criminal mischief, 2nd-degree criminal trespassing, possession of burglary tools and interfering with a police officer.

In addition, Matzdorf was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon.

The two men live at 48 Crystal Ave., New London.

Officers responded to a call at 4:30 a.m., stating there was a robbery in progress. The resident had discovered that a storage shed that had been secured had been tampered and was open. The resident discovered two males fleeing the scene and called 911.

Police set up a perimeter and the State Police K-9 division was called. Tracks were followed, leading officers to a wooded area near Route 12 where the two men were caught.

The men were held on a $75,000 bond and will arraigned in New London Superior Court on Feb. 24.
