New Haven seizes electronic items in store raids


New Haven police have raided four stores, made several arrests and seized thousands of electronic items believed to have been stolen.

The New Haven Register reports that police learned from interviews of robbery and burglary suspects who were arrested that the stores allegedly were destinations for selling stolen electronics.

Police say that in several undercover operations electronic items were sold for cash to the stores.

Arrests on Tuesday were for alleged violations of the secondhand dealer law regulating the purchase and sale of used goods in Connecticut.

Police say they are seeking additional arrest warrants and that charges could be added.
