BRIDGEWATER, CT – A Millerton man is in a Connecticut jail in lieu of $1 million bail on several charges including stealing a car from Middletown overnight on August 3-4.
Dustin Holst-Grubbe, 20, is also wanted for stealing a van from Millerton.
Connecticut police became involved after a home invasion robbery at 606 South Main Street in Bridgewater on August 4 in which a Victor Compe, 64, was shot in the upper body. He was taken to Danbury Hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening wound. His wife, Samantha Moore, 63, was also home at the time, but was not injured.
Police investigated and discovered the two stolen vehicles on North Main Street in Waterbury and through investigation with the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office and Middletown Police, implicated Holst-Grubbe in several crimes. He turned himself in to authorities in Amenia, New York where burglary charges were lodged. Middletown and Dutchess authorities have active warrants filed against him.
Connecticut police have charged him with assault on an elderly person, assault with a deadly weapon, stealing a firearm, three counts of burglary, four counts of larceny, and credit card theft.
