Man Gets 18 Years in “Sadistic” Westport Burglaries

One of two men arrested for a series of Westport and New Canaan burglaries a judge called “sadistic” in which they destroyed $200,000 worth of property in their victims’ homes has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

“This was sadistic,” said Stamford Superior Court Judge Richard Comerford on Friday of the crime spree before pronouncing sentence on Randall Weis, 27, of Bridgeport, according to today’s Advocate. “I will not have barbarians in the streets.”

“I want to apologize to all the victims in the case,” Weis told the court before being sentenced, according to the report. “I don’t know what else to say.”

Weis and Anthony Barbera, 23, of Westport, were arrested Dec. 18, 2006, after Westport police responded to a report of a burglary on Stony Brook Road and caught them after a chase. (See WestportNow Dec. 18, 2006, and WestportNow Dec. 19, 2006)
