GLASTONBURY, CT (WFSB) -

A man and woman have been arrested in connection with a home invasion in Glastonbury in November where more than $100,000 of money and jewelry was stolen from the residence.

Police said they now have arrest warrants for two suspects, who tied up a couple at their home on Thompson Street on Nov. 26 and then took around $108,000 in cash, jewelry and watches.

Joseph DeFreitas, 41, and Marilyn Nadeau, 51, are being held in Morris County, NJ since Jan. 16. They were arrested for an armed robbery of a 71-year-old woman in December.

Both were charged with several crimes including home invasion, second-degree assault and first degree burglary.

Police said both suspects are also wanted for robberies in Wallingford and West Haven.

According to police, Nadeau used to work for the homeowners on Thompson Street in Glastonbury and DeFreitas is her boyfriend.

Police said they have been able to recover around "$10,000 of the stolen jewelry, which had been sold initially at pawn shops in New Jersey."

It is unclear when DeFreitas and Nadeau will be returned to Connecticut to face charges in the Glastonbury case.
