Burglary Suspects Found in Camp in Woods

State police have arrested two homeless people suspected of committing several burglaries in Thompson, Woodstock, Putnam and Killingly.

Police have spent several weeks investigating a string of thefts from homes, including those of disabled and elderly residents; sheds; and cars and obtained several arrest warrants.

At 6 p.m. on Monday, police began an extensive search for the culprits and two search teams head into the woods, where they found a campsite, several items that had been stolen and heroin, police said.
Police arrested Douglas Tracy, 48, and Catherine Edwards, 29.

Both were charged with heroin possession, third-degree burglary, first-degree forgery, and several counts of larceny.

Bond for Tracy was set at $43,000, while bond for Edwards was set at $18,000.

Both are due in Danielson Superior Court on Oct. 13.
