MONROE, Conn. — A 28-year-old man who was arrested on multiple charges in a Monroe home burglary was identified thanks to Facebook posts of photos from surveillance cameras, police said.
Steven Aberg was arrested Friday, July 14, and charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespass, second-degree criminal mischief, third-degree larceny, fraudulent use of ATM, credit card theft, third-degree identity theft and theft of a firearm.
The charges were in connection with a home break-in on Purdy Hill Road in June, police said.
Jewelry, credit cards, electronics and a firearm were stolen, police said. Officers obtained surveillance photos of the suspect, who attempted to use the stolen credit cards, and posted them on Facebook, which led to the identification of the suspect, police said.
Aberg, of Lisbon, is a suspect in other residential burglaries across the state, police said. He was arrested in court and held on $50,000 bond.
