Congratulations to Detective Daniel Bucci for earning Officer of the Month for January 2019.
Chief James Heavey presented Detective Bucci with the award for his investigation into several ATM burglaries.
Through his diligent work, Detective Bucci was able to solve several GPD cases and led to the arrest of a suspect.
Detective Bucci’s efforts helped other State Law Enforcement agencies solve their open cases.
In January police arrested Joshua B. Moore, 39, of 7 Acadia Lane in Shelton for the burglary of an ATM at the CVS at 122 Post Road in Cos Cob on the morning of Feb 22, 2018. The ATM had been forced open and emptied of $32,000 cash.
Detectives noted the characteristics of this incident were similar to two previous ATM burglaries. The first occurred on Aug 14, 2017 at the Shell Gas Station at 1429 East Putnam Ave where over $46,000 was stolen. The second was at the same CVS location and occurred on Nov 14, 2018. In that incident over $26,000 was stolen.
Moore was charged with Burglary 1, Larceny 1 and Criminal Mischief.
