A man arrested recently in Dedham is the Watertown Police Department's prime suspect in a string of home break ins that targeted elderly residents.
Dedham Police arrested Anthony D. Andullerro, 52, of Dorchester, on two counts of unarmed robbery and of four counts of breaking and entering on Aug. 20. Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn said Andullerro may soon face charges linked to from February to May.
"We believe we have a strong suspect for the break ins in Watertown," Lawn said. "We are waiting for results from the state Crime Lab."
Andullero could be tied to between 10 to 15 break ins and attempted break ins, Lawn said.
The crimes focused on elderly residents, and the suspect would cut screens on back doors and windows to enter the homes,
Andullero was also in May, and allegedly tried to escape on an MBTA bus.
