9/12 Hartford Man Facing Multiple Charges on Two Cases

A 34 year old man from Hartford accused of burglarizing a Hartford home while being armed with several knives, had his case pushed back because he is facing charges in another criminal case. Erik Zinda is being charged with burglary, carrying a concealed weapon and resisting an officer. According to the criminal complaint, a Hartford Police Officer was sent to a home at about 4:40 a.m. on August first for a report of a man who entered the garage. The officer opened the service door to the garage when the door sprang back toward him. He turned and looked behind the door and saw Zinda. The officer pointed his gun at Zinda and yelled at him to show his hands. Zinda was eventually put in handcuffs. A search of him turned up several knives in his pockets. In the second case, Zinda was charged with two counts of burglary for stealing cash, ammunition and jewelry from two Kewaskum apartments last November before Thanksgiving. According to the police report, a Kewaskum police officer questioned Zinda, who was living next to the apartments that were burglarized. He told the officer he didn’t see anyone suspicious enter the homes. The investigation continued and in June Zinda was questioned again by police and eventually admitted to burglarizing the apartments in late November or early December. Due to the fact that the second robbery case is still pending, Zinda’s hearing for the August garage incident was delayed until September 30th.
