Police have arrested a mother, her son, her nephew and another man in connection with a home break-in in Stratford.
Police said the burglary happened on the second floor of 782 Light Street on Sept. 24.
Witnesses told police that Marta Williams, 39, acted as a lookout and alerted her son, Jose Burgos Jr., 23; her nephew, Mario Aguilar, 24, of Stratford; and Robert Vega, 21, to flee when the homeowners returned home.
Police said the men had broken into the home and stolen some cash and jewelry.
Witnesses were able to give authorities descriptions of the intruders and the gray Nissan Maxima they fled in, police said.
Authorities stopped the group after an off-duty police officer who was working a construction job found a vehicle matching the description.
Burgos and Aguilar were charged with third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary and sixth-degree conspiracy to commit larceny as well as criminal trespass in the second degree.
Vega was charged with third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary and sixth-degree larceny.
Williams was charged with third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary.
All were held on bond and are scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Court on Oct. 4.
