    Four people are facing charges after reportedly trying to break into a house in Shelton, then leaving when they realized the resident was home, according to police.

    Police said a resident of Foxhunt Road in Shelton called 911 to report the attempted burglary around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. The homeowner provided a description of the suspects’ getaway car, and a nearby officer recognized the vehicle as it drove past him and headed toward 110.

    The officer pulled over the car in question and arrested the following suspects:

    • Walter Young, 57, of Ansonia
    • Danielle McDaniel, 28, of Ansonia
    • Sandra Purcell, 40, of Shelton
    • And John Shibilski, 34, of Ansonia

    All four were charged with conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary and criminal attempt to commit third-degree burglary.

    McDaniel was released on a $500 bond and Young was released after posting $5,000 bond. Both are due in court March 19.

    Purcell and Shibilski were held on $5,000 bonds and are due in court Thursday.
