LEDYARD, Conn. (WTNH) – Ledyard Police arrested a man Wednesday morning who they say had tried to break into a home just before they got him. Around 11:20 a.m. police got a 9-1-1 call about a burglary at 177 Spicer Hill Road. The homeowners say there was a knock at the door, and when it took them a few minutes to answer the door, they say someone tried to break in. Police found a man matching the description not far away, on Route 214. They put Thomas Coady, 35, in the back of a police car, and then used a search dog to trace the burglar’s steps.
