DAYVILLE, CT – Police are searching for a man who stole gardening tools from a business while their workers were performing maintenance at the Westview Nursing Home.

According to police, on Monday, at approximately 12:26 pm, Connecticut State Troopers responded to Westview Nursing Home located in Dayville for the report of a larceny.

“Through further investigation, Troopers learned that a leaf blower and chain saw were stolen out of the back of a lawn care trailer on 04/15/2022 at approximately 3:30 pm,” CSP said. “Troopers later obtained camera footage revealing the suspect vehicle, which is described as a silver in color, KIA SUV-style vehicle which is believed to have CT plates.
