The man wanted for a home invasion in Bridgewater earlier this month has not yet been extradited to Connecticut to face the related charges. 20-year old Dustin Holst-Grubbe was arrested by Dutchess County Sheriff's Deputies and New York State Police for various crimes in their jurisdictions. In addition to still being wanted by Connecticut State Police, Holst-Grubbe faces charges in Middletown, New York.
Bridgewater First Selectman Curtis Read says the random home invasion has the town on edge. He called it a wake up call for a sleepy little town to take keys out of cars, and to be vigilant. Read says it made people nervous, but the focus now is to help the victim and his family.
Holst-Grubbe was allegedly fleeing New Milford Police in a stolen car and came to the Route 133 road block, likely thinking the state police cruiser was there for him and not traffic control.
