A Stratford mother is in some hot water after police said she acted as a lookout while her son and two others robbed an apartment on Tuesday.
Officers were sent to 782 Light St., after getting word of the robbery, and when they arrived they received information about a suspicious vehicle that fled the scene.
As police were investigating, an off-duty police officer spotted the car and notified officers. They made contact with one of the suspect's mother, who lives at 780 Light St. She made contact with those believed to be behind the robbery, and they returned to the scene to meet with officers.
The investigation showed that they broke into the home and left after they stole money and jewelry.
One witness to the robbery said the mother, identified as Marta Williams, 39, acted as a lookout and alerted the trio to flee the home when the resident returned.
Police said they arrested Williams and charged her with conspiracy to commit burglary.
The others arrested were identified as:
Robert Vega, 21, of Stratford, conspiracy to commit burglary
Mario Aguilar, 24, of Stratford, conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit larceny and criminal trespass
Jose Burgos Jr., 23, of Norwalk, conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit larceny and criminal trespass
All were held in jail on bond and were expected to appear in court on Oct. 4.
