Victor Miguel Siguenzia Lozano, 46, was charged with home invasion, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, first-degree larceny and first-degree unlawful restraint.
According to a police statement issued Monday, four suspects entered the home on Oct. 9, 2009 and “attacked and restrained” an 18-year-old male. The suspects were inside the home for around 20 minutes and stole a large amount of currency, jewelry and electronics. Forensic evidence from the crime scene was sent to the state laboratory for analysis.
In October 2013, forensic evidence collected from the crime scene linked Lozano to the home invasion.
A warrant was issued for his arrest, however, Lozano had already been deported to Ecuador in April 2013 after serving a jail sentence for “similar type incidents” in Branford and Wethersfield.
Local police were notified this month that Lozano had been taken into custody by the United States Marshal Service in Texas. He was extradited to Connecticut to face charges for the 2009 incident on Saddlebrook Drive.
Lozano is being held on a $250,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Oct. 6.
