Police Release Description of Suspect in Burglary of Democrat Dodd's Office

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police have issued a description of the suspect in a weekend burglary at Democratic presidential candidate Christopher Dodd's Senate office in Hartford.

Police spokeswoman Nancy Mulroy says the suspect is a Hispanic male between 35 and 40 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall with short dark hair. He was last seen wearing no shirt, white low-top sneakers and black cargo-style pants.

The suspect broke into Dodd's office late Saturday, taking undisclosed items and leaving evidence at the scene.

Police believe the suspects jumped from the roof of an adjacent building onto the fire escape of the building housing Dodd's office and broke into through a second floor window between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. Saturday.

Police are still investigating what was taken and Dodd's office isn't commenting.

Dodd has served in the U.S. Senate since 1981.
