Police: Man charged in residential burglary in Wallingford

Police: Man charged in residential burglary in Wallingford



WALLINGFORD — A Waterbury man faces charges after police said he broke into a home on Knollwood Drive in March 2018.

Kenneth Edwards, 57, of 200 Baldwin Ave., Waterbury, was charged by warrant on Wednesday with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and third-degree criminal mischief. 

On March 23, 2018, a Knollwood Drive resident reported someone forced entry into their home and took jewelry from a bedroom dresser, according to Edwards’s arrest warrant. A torn fingertip of a latex glove found near the dresser was sent to the state laboratory for testing. On Dec. 3, a DNA sample came back from the lab identifying Edwards as a suspect, the warrant said.

According to the warrant, Edwards is a “career criminal” with a history of 35 arrests, including 22 burglaries. 

Edwards was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday. The judge set bond at $25,000 and continued the case to March 27.
