Cops: Two From Danbury Stole $50,000 Worth of Art in Newtown
Two people have been arrested after being accused of being responsible for the theft of some very expensive artwork from a local home.
According to a release from the Newtown Police Department, 27-year-old Brooke Vazzano and 26-year-old Cody Delmedico, both of Danbury, turned themselves into police on Friday (September 7) on outstanding warrants for their arrest. The warrants were reportedly issued after police say an investigation identified the pair as suspects in a theft that took place in Newtown back in June.
Apparently, residents of a Currituck Rd. home were out of town when about $50,000 worth of artwork was stolen. Detectives say that the suspects were related to the person that the Newtown homeowners were using as a petsitter while they were away. The Danbury duo allegedly walked right into the home equipped with the house keys and alarm code then took the art.
Police say that most of the artwork has now been recovered, to which Newtown's Lt. Aaron Bahamonde said, "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."
Both Brooke Vazzano and Cody Delmedio have been charged with burglary in the third degree and larceny in the first. They were released after each posting a $50,000 bond.
