Cops: His Accomplice Is Still Out There
Miguel A. Palencia, 29, of Sherman Street, Stamford, was arrested March 12 and charged with the Nov. 8, 2013 burglary after police used a palm print and a fingerprint left in the house to identify him, police said.
But the homeowner who confronted Palencia also heard another person leave the house through a different door, and the victim didn't see him, according to police. Police didn't identify any fingerprints from that person.
Palencia said he didn't know the name of the other burglar -- only the street name "Chino" -- and he also told police the man was deported back to El Salvador.
Police called to the scene report signs of forcible entry through a rear first floor window. Nothing was taken from the home, according to the police report, but a vehicle parked in an unattached garage was entered and a GPS was reported stolen.
