    Hartford police arrested a convicted felon suspected of multiple thefts from the Dunkin' Donuts Park baseball stadium construction site, the future home of the Hartford Yard Goats. 

    Felix Leon, 39, of Hartford, is accused of eating and drinking food stored in the construction trailers during burglaries and larcenies in August and September, police said. That led police to some DNA evidence that the state lab processed, identifying Leon as the suspect. 

    Leon, who is a convicted felon arrested four times previously in Hartford, was already incarcerated for unrelated burglary charges, police said. He provided police with detailed statements of all the burglaries at the Hartford Downtown North baseball stadium development. 

    Police served Leon four burglary arrest warrants and charged him with third-degree criminal attempt at burglary, eight counts of third-degree burglary, 11 counts of third-degree criminal mischief, two counts of third-degree larceny, two counts of second-degree larceny and third-degree criminal trespass. 

    Hartford Police Department Central Burglary Detectives and patrol officers investigated the case.
