Police said the suspects used a gun and forcibly took things from the Milford home, then took off. Police tried to chase down the vehicle, then ended up losing it as it sped away on East Town Road near Boston Post Road.

The arrests of the four other suspects were made back in January with the help of DNA evidence, eye witnesses, and other methods. 

Drescher is accused of coordinating with the other arrestees to commit the home invasion while she was a guest inside the residence.

Drescher was taken into custody and is facing multiple charges.
