A man arrested in connection with a Bridgewater shooting and home invasion burglarized a diner in New York before committing the crimes in Connecticut.

According to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office, 20-year-old Dustin Holst-Grubbe, of Millerton, NY, burglarized the Oakhurst Diner in Millerton on Aug. 3.

During the morning hours of Aug. 4, the sheriff's office said employees came to work to find evidence of a burglary. Money was taken from a register.

Holst-Grubbe was eventually identified as the suspect.

Also during the morning hours of Aug. 4, Holst-Grubbe invaded a home in Bridgewater, CT during which he shot 64-year-old Victor Compe, according to Connecticut State Police.

Troopers, along with Middletown, NY police and the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office, said they worked together to locate the suspect.

Holst-Grubbe turned himself in to the New York State Police on Aug. 7.

He was charged with third-degree burglary, which is considered a felony. He remains in jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.

In Connecticut, he'll 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.

His bond will be $1 million and he'll face a judge in Litchfield Superior Court.
