Two Avon Lake residents and two accomplices were charged after a home break-in on Glenbrook Court.
Chelsea Alurovic and Stephen Zywotek, both 25 and from Avon Lake, are facing drug and burglary charges in connection with the Nov. 12 incident. They are in the Cuyahoga County jail along with Matthew Graff, 24, of Cleveland, who is being charged with complicity to burglary charges.
Another accomplice, Doran Sutphin, 33, of Cleveland, was arrested Monday afternoon. He is being charged with burglary and is also at the Cuyahoga County jail.
The home was broken into through the side door in the garage. The resident discovered that jewelry and prescription drugs had been taken. Westlake Police found out that an unfamiliar red Jeep was seen in the driveway around noon that day.
Later that day, people on Brahms Drive saw a red Jeep cruising the neighborhood. One of the people in the Jeep got out, and went up to at least two homes and either knocked on the door or looked in the windows. They left when residents either answered the door or looked out the window.
Avon Lake police gave the Westlake cops information on similar cases in that city, which led to Alurovic and Zywotek.
The pair, described by Westlake Police as heroin addicts, also confessed to previously unreported burglaries on Mendelssohn Drive and Settlers Reserve Way, saying both times they'd entered unlocked homes.
They were neat and did not ransack the homes, which accounted for part of the reason why residents did not discover the thefts, said Westlake Police Captain Guy Turner. There may be other unreported cases out there, Turner added.
Turner also said that police in Bay Village and Avon are looking into the suspects.
