NORWICH – A Norwich man who has been arrested 14 times was arrested Thursday for a 2016 burglary, police say.
On July 22, 2016, Norwich police say they responded to a call of a reported burglary in progress at 22 Shipping St., which was occupied by a woman and her two children, ages 11 and 12. Once they arrived, police say they learned a man had attempted to gain entry to the home by removing an air conditioning unit from a window. However, the suspect fled before officers arrived, police say. A k-9 trail also went cold, police say.
During an investigation, police say they obtained fingerprints from the removed air conditioning unit, which they sent to the State Forensic Laboratory for analysis.
Police say the laboratory confirmed the fingerprints belonged to Devan T. Jarmon, 29 of 88 Washington St. Apt. 2 in Norwich.
According to a police report, Jarmon was arrested Thursday for first degree burglary while appearing in Norwich Superior Court for an unrelated crime. According to police, Jarmon is a convicted felon who has been arrested 14 times since 2005.
Police say Jarmon was held on $150,000 bond and is in the custody of the Department of Corrections pending his future court appearances.
