A South Windsor man is facing 13 third-degree burglary charges after allegedly being found to be in possession of a large quantity of GPS units during a motor vehicle stop in August.
Kenneth Armes, 19, of 329 Miller Road, was arrested on several warrants on Monday and was later released on $32,500 non-surety bond.
Armes’ charges stem from an August 2012 car burglary investigation, according to a South Windsor police press release.
After Armes was arrested by state police for a motor vehicle violation, the subsequent investigation revealed “that [the GPS units] had been stolen from the unlocked cars of various South Windsor residents during July 2012,” according to the police press release.
Investigators, according to South Windsor police, worked with Armes to determine the owners of the stolen property and arrest warrants were later obtained for him.
Sgt. Scott Custer said that the alleged GPS thefts are unrelated to the car break-ins and brief motor vehicle chase that took place at a condominium complex on Amato Drive on Oct. 9
Armes is scheduled to appear at Manchester Superior Court on Oct. 25.
