Police: Trackside Deli, Middlefield Home Burglarized

Police say burglars stole cigarettes and two flat screen televisions during break-ins last week.


State Police are investigating two burglaries in Middlefield last week, one at a home and another at a business.

On Monday, Jan. 7, police were called to the Trackside Deli at 108 Main Street to investigate a burglary.

According to a report, a burglar smashed a glass door at the business and stole 50 cartons of cigarettes as well as 160 individual packs of cigarettes. The burglary took place overnight, according to the report, and was discovered around 4:45 a.m.

On Friday, Jan. 11, police were called to 120 West Street to investigate a residential burglary.

According to a police report, two flat screen televisions were taken from the home between 7 a.m. and 7:40 p.m. Although the home has been unoccupied since November the complaintant told police that he had visited the residence from time to time.

Entry into the home was made through a side door by smashing a window, police said.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call State Police Troop F at 860-399-2100.

Too bad the proprietors weren't there to deter the burglars with a Connecticut approved musket.

Dave, I am a gun owner. I don't want to see my rights infringed upon. I want to have an intelligent conversation with those looking to ban weapons. Your comment is ignorant and gives those of us trying to defend our rights a bad rap. Nancy Lanza's guns were legal. She broke the law by not having them locked up correctly. Your comment makes you look like a Pawn for the NRA and gun manufacturers. If we are going to win this fight, we need to be intelligent. Stanley Wysowski
