Thompson Home Invasion Under Investigation
On Monday, September 17th, Connecticut State Police Troop D received a complaint from a homeowner that on Laporte Road in Thompson who reported that he was the victim of an armed robbery.
Police say the man told them he was inside of his home, just after 8:30AM, when he was confronted by a white male in his early to mid 30s, approximately 5’6” to 5’8” tall, weighing between 130 and 150 pounds. The suspect was described to be tan with dark colored eyes, short dark brown hair and dark facial hair, wearing a black baseball hat with white colored numbers and letters on the front of it. He was also wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt, gray jeans and white sneakers with red and black trim.
The unidentified homeowner stated that the male brandished a folding knife and demanded a ride to a nearby ATM to withdraw funds. The subject threatened to cause bodily harm to the homeowner if he did not comply with his requests. The man complied with the suspect and drove the male to two separate banks where he withdrew money and gave to the subject.
The homeowner was able to provide police with a vehicle description and partial license plate that the suspect was using. The vehicle is believed to be a green 2003 Pontiac Grand AM with several bumper stickers on the back, with Massachusetts registration 5VAJ30. This vehicle was stolen earlier the same morning from Webster.
Anyone with information on who the suspect may be, or where he may be located are asked to contact the Connecticut State Police Eastern District Major Crime Troop D at (860) 779-4944.
