Smile: You’re On Home Surveillance. Homeowner’s Video Captures Burglar

Milford police say images provided by the home-owner’s own video surveillance system helped lead them to a suspect in a residential burglary earlier this month.

Police say cash and jewelry were taken from the home on Housatonic Drive.  The video led to a warrant for arrest of 34-year-old Michael Spangler of Milford .  When he was picked on Interstate 95,  he was found to have105 prescription pills in his possession,  and tried to give the name of a relative in an effort to avoid arrest.

Police say they expect to file additional charges against him in similiar crimes.
