Groton — City police on Thursday charged a 31-year-old former New London man with numerous burglary and larceny charges for allegedly pilfering GPS units, spare change and other valuables from nearly two dozen cars in one night.

Adam M. Rolon, with a last known address of 272 Jefferson Ave., No. 2, in New London, is charged with 23 counts of third-degree burglary, six counts of sixth-degree larceny and one count of violation of probation.

Groton City Detective Sgt. Jad Bickford said Rolon, on Oct. 29, entered numerous unlocked cars in neighborhoods surrounding Shennecossett Golf Course and Eastern Point Beach.

Detectives had developed Rolon as a suspect during their investigation and eventually tracked down some of the stolen merchandise, Bickford said. He said there was an active warrant for Rolon when the state Adult Probation department took Rolon into custody Thursday morning in Stonington.

Rolon was placed on probation earlier this year following a felony drug possession conviction, court records show.

Rolon was held in lieu of a combined $45,000 in bonds and is due to appear today in New London Superior Court.

Police ask anyone with information pertaining to criminal activity in Groton City to contact detectives at (860) 446-4186.
