T New London firefighter has been demoted in rank after being arrested for shoplifting earlier this year. Rocco Basilica – who was just promoted to Step 1 lieutenant on Feb. 1 – had his rank reduced to Class 6 firefighter after he and his wife were charged with stealing from the UConn Co-op bookstore in Storrs.

Not only was Basilica a high-ranking member of the department, he’s also the resident of the New London local firefighters union.

He’s been with the New London department since 1996.
