Acushnet Police arrested two people in connection with a break-in Wednesday afternoon.

Police say an officer observed a suspicious white male entering a yard on Lake St. around 2:15 p.m.

The man told the officer he was looking for a job site then abruptly left the yard and got into the passenger side of a dark grey four door Pontiac Grand-Am, which drove off.

The car was spotted moments later and pulled over.

Officers looked in the car and saw several lock boxes, pillow cases filled with items, and a 12 inch long crowbar.

About the same time an officer was approached by a resident who said his home had been broken into and several items were taken.

Those items, identified as a grey lockbox/safe, jewelry, a Kindle tablet, and pillow cases were later found in the suspect vehicle.

It was also determined that several items in the car were stolen from a home in Freetown earlier that day.

The passenger, identified as 30-year-old Robert Alton Greene, and the driver, identified as 26-year-old Caitlyn Ellen Connolly, were arrested on charges of B&E in the Daytime for Felony, Larceny from a Building, Destruction of Property +250, Conspiracy, Possession of Burglarious Instrument, and Receiving Stolen Property +250.

Greene and Connolly were scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday.
