FAIRFIELD, Conn. ? A second suspect has been arrested in a string of home burglaries, Fairfield Police report. Noel Miletes, 34, from East Hartford, was charged Friday with multiple counts of larceny in connection with at least two break-ins in March, police say.
The first burglary took place on Mill Hill Terrace on March 21. The homeowner returned to find the bedroom in disarray and $8,251 worth of jewelry and a jar containing $1,000 in change missing. The second incident was on Putting Green Road a week later. In that case, the burglars took $25,000 in jewelry and drove off in a small green sedan.
In May, police stopped Miletes and Kathryn Ryan, 29, of Bridgeport on Hulls Highway in a car matching that description. After obtaining a search warrant, police found several items from the burglaries in the Bridgeport home occupied by the couple at the time. Ryan was arrested in July and charged with taking part in the burglaries.
Manchester Police arrested Miletes on a separate charge Friday. They turned him over to Fairfield Police after finding an outstanding warrant for his arrest. Fairfield Police charged Miletes with two counts of burglary, two counts of larceny and one count of conspiracy. He was held on $40,000 bond and is due in court Sept. 9.
