Police yesterday said they arrested a 25-year-old man caught breaking into two Milford homes, as detectives were tracking a suspect in an unrelated overnight burglary at a Main Street business.
In the home break-ins, police say James M. Cyr, 25, broke into homes on Whip-O-Will Lane and Congress Street, and stole a large sum of cash, a Dell laptop and other valuables from one house.
Cyr first snuck into the basement at 225 Congress St. about 12:20 p.m., and got spooked when he found the homeowners' son upstairs, police said.
``The defendant saw the kid in the kitchen and he ran out the back door,'' said Sgt. Kara Maguire.
The son described the suspect, later identified as Cyr, as wearing a dark blue Jiffy Lube work shirt and matching work pants, with ``Jim'' embroidered on the shirt, according to Officer David Villani's report.
Earlier in the day, Patrolman Craig Stanley had stopped Cyr, of 1 Capital Road, Milford, in a red Hyundai on Quarry Drive, and issued him a citation. Stanley recalled that Cyr was wearing a Jiffy Lube uniform, Villani wrote.
Officers learned that Cyr works at the Jiffy Lube in Franklin.
Suspecting it was Cyr who broke into the Congress Street home, police went to 1 Capital Road, apt. 2, the address of Cyr and the Hyundai's owner. Nobody answered the door, police said.
Meanwhile, just before 1 p.m., a ``frantic'' man from 8 Whip-O-Will Lane called police to report someone was trying to break into his home and he had the suspect detained in the driveway, Villani's report reads.
The man had returned home to find Cyr in the Hyundai parked in the driveway, with the garage door open, according to Villani's report.
The man called police after he asked Cyr what he was doing.
``He tried to claim he was just turning around, but he wasn't,'' Maguire said.
The resident said his home had clearly been broken into, and several items were missing from his bedroom.
Officers found $906 cash on Cyr, and found two white plastic bags, a black backpack, a black computer case carrying the Dell laptop, and a red plastic gas container nearby, police said.
Cyr was arrested at 1:10 p.m. and charged with two counts of breaking and entering a building for a felony.
He was being held last night on $2,000 cash bail, and scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow in Milford District Court.
Meanwhile yesterday, detectives were called in to process evidence and investigate an overnight break-in and robbery at Larkin Co. Realtors.
Police said several flat-screen monitors were taken, and the inside of the business at 280 Main St. was trashed.
``The office was a mess because of the person who broke in,'' Maguire said.
Det. Cmdr. Lt. James Falvey said police have a lead suspect, and are working with blood evidence and other clues.
``I sent my detectives in, I guess there was blood all over the place, there was some leads on who might have done it,'' Falvey said.
Falvey said the suspect entered the real estate office through a window that was smashed in the upstairs apartment.
``The person was home but never heard it, so that's kind of a dangerous situation,'' the lieutenant said.
