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.
