A Danbury man has been charged by Newtown Police with home invasion and other crimes. Police say the arrest of 21-year old Logan Buckner is the result of an extensive investigation into a complaint of an armed robbery that occurred at a Meadow Brook Road home in October 2018.
Buckner was stopped by Danbury Police early Sunday morning and arrested on the outstanding felony arrest warrant.
Newtown Police spokesman Lt Aaron Bahamonde described the incident as a planned robbery, drug deal gone bad. The victim was struck in the head with the butt of a gun during the robbery and not seriously injured.
Three suspects were identified during the investigation and warrants were secured for all three. One of the suspects was a juvenile and the other suspect who has yet to be charged is currently being held in a New York State Correctional Facility on other gun related and drug charges.
In addition to home invasion, Buckner was charged with Robbery, Larceny and Conspiracy to Commit Home Invasion. Buckner is being held at a $250,000.00 bond and will be taken to Waterbury Superior Court today.
