Two people were arrested for burglarizing a Wolcott home while the victims were home.

Police said they arrested 19-year-old Vanessa Alvarado and 20-year-old Tayler Grant, both of Naugatuck, early Wednesday morning.

They said they received a 911 call shortly after 6 a.m. from a person who said she believed a burglar entered her home and was upstairs.

The caller and her husband had been in the basement working out at the time. They reported hearing noises from their second floor.

The husband told the woman to go to the car with their 4-year-old son.

She reported that an unknown Hyundai was parked in front of her house with an unknown female passenger inside.

The husband went upstairs in his home and found one of the suspects hiding in a shower.

The suspect handed the husband a bag of his wife's jewelry and yelled "sorry" as she fled out of the house.

She fled in the Hyundai toward Plymouth.

An officer found the vehicle in the Allentown Road area of Plymouth and the driver appeared to be having trouble driving the car, which had a standard transmission.

The officer said he ordered the driver out of the car and arrested her.

Another officer arrived and took the passenger into custody.

Police said they found a number of items from both inside and outside of the victim's home in their car, which investigators found had itself been stolen out of Naugatuck.

Both Alvarado and Grant were charged with first-degree burglary, third-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit fifth-degree larceny.

They were held on $100,000 bonds.
