Stratford police have arrested two men in connection with two recent burglaries.
Love Millet of Bridgeport and Cameron Random of Derby, both 21, are accused of stealing from a home on Birdseye Street and attempting to burglarize one on Columbus Avenue, according to police.
Police said the resident of 484 Columbus Avenue called on Sept. 19 to report that a man had entered her home. The resident said she scared him off, sending him running through the neighbors’ backyards, according to police.
He was seen riding in a white Ford Explorer with South Carolina license plates. Police said the suspect and car matched the descriptions of those involved in previous burglaries in Stratford and surrounding towns.
According to police, Random was found waiting in the car on Garibaldi Avenue and Millet was found hiding behind a home on Priscilla Lane.
They said jewelry stolen from 795 Birdseye Street was found in Millet’s pocket, and a stolen TV was discovered in Random’s trunk.
Millet was charged with third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny, interfering with an officer and criminal impersonation. Police also served him with a court-ordered arrest warrant for violation of probation, authorities said.
Random was charged with conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary and fifth-degree larceny.
Both men were held on $100,000 bonds and arraigned Sept. 20.
The investigation is ongoing.
