BRIDGEWATER, CT (WFSB) -

The suspect accused in a Bridgewater home invasion is currently in police custody in New York.

Through the investigation, the suspect, identified as Dustin Holst-Grubbe, was involved in multiple crimes in Middletown New York and in Duchess County, in addition to Connecticut.

Connecticut State Police, Middletown New York police and the Duchess County Sheriff’s Office worked together to locate Holst-Grubbe, who had turned himself in to New York State Police on Aug. 7 on burglary charges.

Multiple arrest warrants were prepared for Holst Grubbe by Middletown New York, Duchess County, and Connecticut State police.

In Connecticut, Holst-Grubbe will be charged with home invasion, assault of an elderly person, first-degree assault, stealing a firearm, first-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, second-degree larceny, third-degree larceny and credit card theft.

He will be held on a $1 million bond and will appear in Litchfield Superior Court.

Holst-Grubbe, 20, is from Millerton, NY.

Last week, 64-year-old Victor P. Compe was shot in the upper body, but state police said the wound was non-life-threatening.

His wife, 63-year-old Samantha Moore, was present during the home invasion on Main Street South around 3:40 a.m. While police said Moore was present, she was not hurt. 

Over the course of their investigation, they said they recovered a stolen motor vehicle on Main Street South.

They said they also recovered two more on North Main Street in Waterbury.
