Police Make Third Arrest in Southbury Armed Robbery

21-year-old man reportedly the second armed robber, third arrest, in the Southbury McDonald's break-in.

State Police arrested a man in connection with an armed robbery at Southbury McDonald’s earlier this month.

According to state police, Paul DiLeo, 21, took part in the armed robbery and was arrested and charged with several counts Thursday morning.

Paul DiLeo was charged with:

  • First-degree robbery
  • First-degree burglary
  • First-degree unlawful restraint (three counts)
  • Second-degree larceny
  • Criminal use of a firearm

DiLeo was also charged with:

  • First-degree conspiracy to commit larceny
  • First-degree conspiracy to commit burglary
  • First-degree conspiracy to commit unlawful restraint
  • Second-degree conspiracy to commit larceny

Last week police arrested a juvenile and charged him with several crimes including first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and criminal use of a firearm. Police also charged the McDonald’s store manager that reportedly conspired in the armed robbery.

According to state police, shortly after midnight on Sept. 2 two armed men entered the rear door of the Southbury McDonald’s, 100 Main St. North, in Southbury, and ordered two female and one male employee to the ground while the other male employee was ordered to empty the safe. The suspects then fled with approximately $5,000 in cash, police said.

The two suspects were reportedly armed with a gun, knife, and baseball bat.

With the arrest of DiLeo, all involved parties in this case have been arrested, according to State Police. DiLeo is being held on a $250,000 court-set bond and is scheduled to appear in Waterbury Superior Court Thursday.

I'm hoping this isn't the same Paul Dileo that graduated PHS in 2009. This kind of behavior would be so out of character for him.

Why has the Patch declined to publish the town where Paul Dileo lives or was brought up?
