On Thursday, a homeowner on Sunset Drive in Somers thwarted an attempted burglary at his home.
As a result, a Rockville man and an Enfield man have been charged.
The man, who was home at the time, was startled and reported that two men were attempting to force their way into his home. The homeowner confronted the two men, who fled from the scene on foot.
The Enfield Police Department located two individuals similar to the description given by the victim on a nearby street in Enfield. The men were detained and after further investigation, the men were arrested.
Somers Resident State Trooper Sgt. Jose Claudio said that a Connecticut State Police K-9 dog tracked from the residence - approximately one mile - to where they were being detained by the Enfield Police Department.
“The dog alerted to the suspect he was tracking,” Claudio said. “The homeowner was then brought over and he was able to positively identify one of the suspects. The suspect later confessed to the attempted burglary.”
The suspects have been identified as Matthew W. Navarro, 34, of 116 High St. in Rockville, and Nicholas S. Trombley, 23, of 93 Arbor Rd. in Enfield.
Navarro was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief, sixth-degree larceny, conspiracy, and attempt to commit crime.
Trombley was charged with third-degree burglary, manufacture or possession of burglar’s tools, third-degree criminal mischief, and attempt to commit crime. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both men were held in lieu of $50,000 bonds and were scheduled to be presented at Rockville Superior Court on Friday.
