A fifth person has been arrested in connection with a violent home invasion that took place last year.

Alisha Drescher, 21, of Bridgeport, was arrested Thursday by Milford Police for taking part in the crime in May 2017, in which two black men wearing masks used a handgun to hold a male and female at bay as they stole items from the home, said the Milford Police.

Drescher, who was a guest at the home, is accused of coordinating with the others to arrange the home invasion and robbery, police said.

When police arrived on the scene, they tried to chase down the vehicle, then ended up losing it on East Town Road near Boston Post Road.

The four other suspects were arrested in January with the help of DNA evidence and eyewitness reports.

Drescher was charged with conspiracy to commit home invasion, conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit burglary, reckless driving, and engaging police in a pursuit.
