Westbrook police say a deep snow cover allowed them to track the footprints of two men who were arrested Sunday morning after burglarizing a number of parked cars.

Capt. Michael Nugent said in a press release said that Kevin Grescoviak, 20, of Westbrook and Paolo Patriotti, 20, of Windham were charged with four counts each of burglary to a motor vehicle and theft by unauthorized taking, and one count each of theft of drugs. Patriotti had an active arrest warrant for violating his bail conditions. Due to the number of his previous theft convictions, Patriotti’s theft charges are felonies.

Nugent said a Westbrook Public Services snowplow driver noticed suspicious activity around 4 a.m. Sunday and notified police. Officers followed footprints near cars that had been broken into. The footprints led them to an Everett Court home.

After obtaining a search warrant for the residence, police arrested Grescoviak and Patriotti around 7 a.m. Officers also recovered a number of stolen items including cellphones, GPS receivers, laptop computers, power tools, gift cards and bank cards.

Nugent said his department has been investigating a number of car burglaries in recent days. Residents whose cars have been burglarized are urged to contact the Westbrook Police Department at 854-0644. The department’s investigation is continuing and additional charges could be filed.
