STAMFORD CT Dec 7 2016 — A burglar who was chased from a downtown building Saturday night might be responsible for several other office break-ins, police said.
The guard of a Washington Boulevard building stopped the burglary about 9:15 p.m. Saturday and gave a description of the suspect to police.
Officer Dan Kokkoros apprehended the man a short time later at the corner of Washington Boulevard and West Broad Street. The security guard identified the man as the burglar, Capt. Richard Conklin said.
Robert Butler, 57, has been charged with third-degree burglary. He was also charged with possession of burglary tools for the flat-tipped screwdriver and chisel he was carrying, Conklin said.

Conklin said police suspect Butler, who he says has an extensive record for burglaries and break-ins, is also responsible for other break-ins in a Summer Street office building two weeks ago.
