SUFFIELD, Conn. (WWLP) – Police in Suffield, Connecticut have arrested a second man from Springfield on car break-in charges.

According to a Suffield police news release sent to 22News, Eric Johnson, 33, of Indian Orchard was arrested Thursday for his alleged role in the break-in of a car on Windbrook Drive back in June.

Johnson had previously been arrested for a series of car break-ins in other northern Connecticut towns from June through August.

Earlier in the month, Suffield police arrested Andrew Dupree of Springfield, who is also accused of involvement in the break-in. Suffield police say that Dupree had earlier admitted to Bloomfield police that he and his friends used Google Maps to help them find neighborhoods they considered affluent, and then went there to find and steal from unlocked cars.

Johnson is charged with burglary, larceny, and conspiracy to commit both burglary and larceny.

Suffield police say that they have a warrant for the arrest of a third person who allegedly worked with Johnson and Dupree.
