MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) – An axe-wielding suspect who broke into the Greater Middletown Military Museum has been arrested.

On Thursday, police arrested 22-year-old Isaiah Nemecek, of Middletown.

Middletown police responded to the museum on Walnut Grove Road on Tuesday for the report of a burglary.

Video surveillance showed a suspect wearing a mask and using an axe to force entry into the building on Tuesday.

The suspect took items from the museum, police said, but they did not say what kind of items were taken. 

A track for the suspect was conducted by police K9, but the suspect was not found.

By Thursday morning, they reported that they had a person of interest in custody on unrelated charges.

An item taken from the museum was also recovered on Wednesday night.

Nemecek was charged with third-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools, first-degree criminal mischief, and sixth-degree larceny.
