Oxford resident interrupts burglary in progress

October 14, 2018

OXFORD — A man with various other cases pending in the Connecticut court system was charged again Friday after a woman interrupted his burglary attempt at her home in Oxford.

Daniel Tichy, 41, was charged with second-degree burglary, Connecticut State Police said Saturday. The agency said Tichy also had an active warrant for a separate incident, with charges of fourth-degree larceny and credit card fraud.

When Tichy was taken into custody, state police said, he was found to be in possession of narcotics. The charges he would face for that were not immediately provided.

There were no immediate court records for this incident, but records for Tichy show at least eight separate criminal incidents pending in the court system.

The most recent incident Tichy faces charges for happened Friday morning.

Around 8 a.m., police responded to a home in Oxford for a reported burglary that the resident interrupted.

Once troopers got to the home, the homeowner told them she was on the second floor of her home with her child, then went downstairs and saw an unknown man in his 20s in her home.

“When confronted, the white male fled on foot from the residence,” state police said.

Texas, a state police Troop A bloodhound, and his partner Trooper Edward Anuszewski responded to the home. Texas was able to pick up the suspect’s scent and brought state police to the suspect’s potential residence — but he wasn’t there.

State police said several leads popped up and Tichy was identified as the suspect in the attempted burglary. He was found in Waterbury and taken into custody.
