Man Says He Committed at Least 600 Burglaries

Associated Press

A man police call “a one-man crime wave” has admitted to committing 600 to 700 burglaries in the city over the last two years, authorities say.

Neil Patrick Green, 32, of Hartford, was being held Wednesday in lieu of $32,000 bail and awaited arraignment in Superior Court on 50 counts of burglary and 44 counts of larceny.

“He was a one-man crime wave,” Detective Thomas J. Murphy said.

Police said they have tied Green to 354 burglaries, but they said the judicial system could not handle prosecution in all of the cases.
