2 charged in home burglary spree in 7 Conn. towns
MONROE, Conn. (AP) -- Police say two men arrested in Monroe are responsible for a home burglary spree in seven Fairfield County towns in September and October.
Monroe police received numerous break-in complaints in the two months, reporting jewelry and cash thefts. Fairfield County police discovered a similar increase in burglaries in several other towns.
The Connecticut Post reports that Connor Buckley of Shelton and Eammon Donnelly of Newtown became suspects after a Monroe officer on patrol saw a vehicle matching the description of one used in previous robberies.
Police found jewelry, tools, gloves and small electronic items in Buckley's car and house. Police say they recovered jewelry and burglar tools from Donnelly's home.
Both men were charged with burglary and larceny.
It wasn't known Wednesday morning if they are represented by a lawyer.
