A woman whose home had been burglarized thought her ex-boyfriend might have done it, and when police questioned him, they said, he admitted that he had.
According to police, the ex-boyfriend -- Hector Aguilar, 31 -- said he thought it would be OK to break in because she was his girlfriend.
Police gave this account (an accusation not proven in court) of the matter:
When the woman had left her apartment on Grove Street at 2 p.m. Sunday, she had locked the doors. When she returned at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, she found the door had been forced open, and the lock and the door frame was damaged.
Her apartment was in disarray, with dresser drawers open and her clothing strewn on the floor. She didn't find anything missing, however.
Aguilar said he had used a knife to break in on Sunday evening, then left at 6 a.m. Monday.
Police applied for and received a warrant to arrest Aguilar, of 8 Snowden St., Norwalk. He was arrested Wendnesday on charges of third-degree burglary, trespassing and third-degree criminal mischief. His bond was initially set at $50,000 and he was scheduled to appear that day in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
