Dwayne Wilkinson, 30, of White Plains, N.Y., was arrested on Nov. 27 on charges of 22 counts of third-degree burglary, four counts of fourth-degree larceny, two counts of fifth-degree larceny and six counts of sixth-degree larceny.
Police said the charges stem from a rash of motor vehicle burglaries that occurred during the overnight hours of Aug. 13, 2009, according to police. Twenty-two motor vehicle burglaries were perpetrated and $4,160 in personal property taken, according to police.
Darien police worked in concert with New York State Police and the New York Department of Motor Vehicles and said a vehicle suspected of being involved in the motor vehicle burglaries was identified.
By tracing the suspected vehicle's ownership records, it was determined that Wilkinson, although not the car's owner, had possession of the vehicle at the time of the motor vehicle burglaries, according to police.
He was subsequently interviewed and confessed to the crimes, according to police.
Wilkinson was held without bond and appeared in court on Nov. 28.
