Police Searching for 2 After Middlebury Home Invasion

Male and female suspects allegedly fled the scene of a home invasion involving two minors.

Middlebury and state police are on the lookout for two people suspected of invading a home on Yale Avenue just after 4:30 p.m. Thursday, startling two children and making off with some valuables.

According to Middlebury police, two children were home when two perpetrators, one male and one female, entered the residence and went up stairs to a bedroom and kicked in the locked bedroom door. The burglars left the scene with a jewelry box and its contents, a CD player and what is believed to be a pellet gun.

The children were not injured and their exact ages are not known at this time, but they are both believed to be under the age of 11, according to Middlebury Police Lt. Richard Wildman.

The suspects have been identified as a white male in his 30s, approximately 5’4” with a very thin build, wearing a beige cap, white shirt and blue jeans. The second suspect is a white female, approximately 5’8", described as tall, very thin, wearing a red shirt, blue jeans and with her brown hair tied up in a bun.

The suspects are believed to have fled in a newer white cargo van with a black logo on the upper portion of the rear of the van and a blue ladder on the roof.

Police remain at the scene collecting evidence and anyone with information is asked to contact them at 203-577-4028.

Wildman also noted that police are looking to see if there is a link between this incident and suspicious activity that occurred earlier today in Easton. More information will follow as it becomes available.

Any more info? were the kids home alone? sounds it... Were the kids in the bedroom they kicked the door in? Did they just walk into the house or did they break in? This could have ended very badly. I guess it's time to lock up the house at all times, put the Alarm on at all times, Video cames outside and in, and have some type of emergency plans in place to try and protect ourselves a little more. Also, yeah, yeah, yeah I know the old saying, "If we live in fear, we aren't living" but... There is a difference between "Living in fear" and, "Being prepared" and most times, its the prepared folks who live while the other curl up in a corner and are victimized. These kids , if they went into the room and locked the door were pretty smart... too bad they couldnt get out a window and call the cops. (another reason to keep your cell phone on you all the time!)
