Jailed Stamford Man Now Charged with South End Burglaries

A 45-year-old being held in a domestic violence incident now faces charges stemming from a burglary spree last month.

A 45-year-old Stamford man already in police custody on domestic violence charges now additionally faces larceny and burglary charges related to multiple break-ins at a South End business, police announced Wednesday

Miguel Lopez-Berrios, of Pacific St., was charged for his alleged involvement in multiple burglaries over the course of July 15 and 16th, including two incidents at Palmer Electric, in which police said he was caught on video.

Stamford Police said multiple residents in the area knew Lopez-Barrios as a "frequent person of interest."

Lopez-Berrios was arrested in a domestic violence incident in Downtown Stamford in August and police said the current charges stemmed from a warrant obtained following an interview conducted with Lopez-Berrios after that arrest.

Police expect additional charges to arise from other burglaries that occurred in the area during the same time frame. According to authorities, Lopez-Berrios is accused of stealing tools and electrical supplies he could easily fence. Approximately $3,600 in items were stolen in the rash of burglaries.

Lopez-Berrios was charged with two counts of third-degree burglary, third-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit burglary.
