Man charged with damaging ex-girlfriend's house

A Seymour man who police said caused more than $700 worth of damage to an ex-girlfriend's house was arrested on a warrant Monday.

Robert E. Miller, 24, of Davis Road in Seymour, was charged with third-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass, second-degree criminal mischief and breach of peace. He was held on $25,000 bond and scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court later that day.

According to police, Miller showed up at the ex-girlfriend's house on Hunyadi Avenue around 1 a.m. April 4, and began banging on doors, demanding to be let in the house. The woman did not let him in and, instead, managed to leave. When she returned around an hour later, she found the back door had been kicked in and the kitchen damaged.

Miller turned himself in at Police Department headquarters.
