A Stratford man has been arrested by Naugatuck police for stealing more than $14,000 worth of jewelry from a Naugatuck home on Oct. 2, 2011.
Since February, Douglas Fast, 47, has also been charged by police in seven other towns for similar crimes, according to state records.
Fast, whose last known address was 94 Everett St., Stratford, was charged with felony counts of third-degree burglary and second-degree larceny in connection with the Naugatuck theft.
He has 26 burglary and larceny cases pending at state courthouses, according to the Connecticut’s Judicial Branch website. He has been charged in connection to thefts in Naugatuck, Trumbull, Milford, Shelton, Orange, Seymour, Stratford and Fairfield, according to Judicial Branch records.
Fast is currently imprisoned at the Bridgeport Correctional Center. All of his cases are either awaiting pleas or are in the pre-trial phase, records indicate.
Fast has not yet entered a plea in the Naugatuck case, which has been continued to July 20 at Waterbury Superior Court.
