Robert Wolterstorff, 24, formerly of 54 Old Stone Bridge Rd in Greenwich was arrested, along with accomplice Daisy Bongiorni, 22, of 8 Sheephill Rd in Riverside by Greenwich Police on Thursday Aug 17, 2o17.

According to Greenwich Police Lt David Nemecek, after a rash of car break ins in Old Greenwich, police initiated an investigation and were starting to gather forensic evidence on the Old Greenwich crimes when they received word that Wolterstorff and Bongiorni were at a Stag Lane home of one of the break in victims.

Lt Nemecek said Bongiorni had shown up with stolen property at the victim’s home and attempted to return it, claiming that she had found it.  “She made contact with one of the victims,” Nemecek said, adding that the victim was offering to give Bongiorni money for the briefcase.

“Police were able to connect the parties to the Larcenies,” Nemecek continued, adding that Wolterstorff’s and Bongiorni’s stories didn’t match. Police linked Wolterstorff to several other break-ins in the Old Greenwich area.

Officers arrested both Wolterstorff and Bongiorni.
