Burglars stole wedding cake, bat & booze during bizarre home invasion: Cops

Two Connecticut men are accused of stealing various items—including the top of a wedding cake—during an August 27 home invasion.

The Hartford Courant reports that Zachary Jurewicz, 24, and Eric Rawson, 26, allegedly stole several items, including a bat they used to destroy property at the Tolland residence. Police said a man and his juvenile daughter were home at the time.

Armed with a bat, the men then reportedly went to a nearby home and stole a purse, alcohol, a laptop, and the top portion of a wedding cake from inside a freezer. Police said a brief argument transpired between the homeowner and men before they took her possessions.

Jurewicz and Rawson are said to have fled the home and retreated into nearby woods. The two men were taken into custody a short time later, after an officer and police K-9 tracked down Jurewicz and Rawson, according to the Tolland Patch.

Jurewicz and Rawson were charged with home invasion, first-degree burglary, fifth- and sixth-degree larceny, disorderly conduct, first-degree risk of injury to a child, second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, and breach of peace.
