Tuesday morning at approximately 9:35 a.m., Troopers conducted a motor vehicle stop in the area of Route 32 southbound in the town of Stafford Springs for a seatbelt violation. The operator of the vehicle was identified as 25 year old Troy Burgess of Stafford, Connecticut. It was discovered that Burgess also had a suspended license and a fully extraditable arrest warrant for identity theft in the State of Ohio.
The accused was accompanied by three individuals in the vehicle, 1 adult female and 2 small children whose identities are not known. As Troopers and Officers from the Stafford Police Department approached the vehicle in an attempt to make contact with Burgess, Burgess placed the vehicle in reverse in an attempt to flee the scene. Burgess then drove away at an extremely high rate of speed after nearly striking Troopers and Officers on scene.
The vehicle is described as a red Lincoln sedan with damage to the front left bumper area. The 2009 Lincoln is bearing Ohio registration HYL2576. If anyone comes into contact with Burgess or knows the whereabouts of the accused, they are asked to contact Troop C in Tolland at 860-896-3200 or the Stafford Resident State Trooper’s Office at 860-684-3777 immediately. As always calls can be made anonymously.
