Police have warrants for a 51-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man suspected in a home invasion on Thompson Street in Glastonbury on Nov. 26.
Police have arrested Marilyn Nadeau, 51, formerly of Windsor and Vernon, who had worked in the residence, and Joseph DeFreitas, 41, of New Jersey, who are incarcerated in New Jersey and are suspects in armed robberies in Wallingford and West Haven.
Police said a masked man with a gun broke into the home at 10:30 p.m. that night and tied up Lynn Murray, 71, and her 69-year-old husband, Bob Murray, with phone cord and threatened them with a gun.
The robber tied Lynn's wrist so tight during the home invasion that it broke and she had to go through surgery.
The intruder then demanded the victims to take him to the safe and fled with $108,000 in cash, jewelry and watches.
Police said early on in the investigation that the crime was not random and said Nadeau had done some sort of work in for the victims in the house.
DeFreitas was charged with home invasion, burglary, assault, carrying a dangerous weapon, second-degree false statement and additional charges.
Nadeau was charged with home invasion and larceny, in addition to other charges.
DeFreitas and Nadeau were arrested in New Jersey on Jan. 16, from their alleged involvement in an armed robbery of a 71-year-old woman in December 2012.
The Patch in Parsippany, New Jersey reports that the alleged carjacking and kidnapping of happened when the woman stopped while returning from visiting family because she was lost.
Glastonbury police traveled to New Jersey and obtained more evidence linking the pair to the Glastonbury home invasion.
Glastonbury Police detectives said they have recovered approximately $10,000 of the stolen jewelry, which had been sold initially at pawn shops in New Jersey.
When DeFreitas and Nadeau will return to Connecticut to face the charges is not clear.
