DNA gives city police suspect in '10 robbery


Police will check through records to see if Collazo, who was convicted of committing several crimes similar to this breaking and entering, all in New York, could be a suspect in any other breaking and entering cases locally.

“We’ll be looking back and seeing if there’s anything that relates to this. He probably was walking from his house, looking for opportunities,” Fitzgerald said.

Police are issuing a warrant for Collazo’s arrest and following up to see if he still lives in the Western Avenue area — though they suspect he does not, given his arrest in New York this year.

A neighbor at the time of the 2010 breaking and entering told police at that time that he heard a bang, then saw a man he described as 5 feet 9 inches tall, about 35 to 40 years old, with reddish hair and a red complexion exit the house through a basement bulkhead.

“I don’t know what he looks like now,” Fitzgerald said, “but the blood’s a match.”
