SOUTHINGTON - A local man, charged in a commercial burglary, is expected to soon be released to receive treatment.
Joseph Crapo, 32, has been granted a JRI (jail re-interview) referral. These referrals act as a pretrial release plan to get a defendant treatment.
During a hearing Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court, a judge told Crapo she is hoping a bed opens up in an area program by his next court date, on May 8. The nature of his treatment has not been released.
Crapo, who is being held on $40,000 bond, has been accused of breaking into Nyren's of New England, a florist shop located at 456 North Main St., on Feb. 15. 2017. Police said the suspect pried open a window to the business in the overnight hours and took cash from the register. Somewhere between $70-80 was reported missing.
Investigators took DNA samples from the burglary and later linked them to Crapo. He was arrested in December on charges of third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny and third-degree criminal mischief.
