SHELTON — Two suspected burglars, one a convicted felon, are facing new charges.

Shelton police arrested Allen Young on Feb. 17and Emanuel Ranger on Feb. 19 on new charges, according to a prepared statement from Detective Chris Nugent. Both men were already in custody on “unrelated charges.”

“The arrest stems from a burglary which occurred in the spring of 2015,” wrote Nugent. “Shelton police were able to link Ranger and Young to a residential burglary, which matched the modus operandi to other area burglaries, which occurred around the same timeframe, in the Huntington section of Shelton.”

Shelton police arrested both men on April 21, 2015, on suspicion they had burglarized a Waverly Terrace home.

At the time, residents of Waverly and Sorghum roads had told officers that the duo had parked a car and walked door to door looking for unoccupied homes. Police said the suspects had fled pursuit on foot but that officers and a K9 unit had tracked them to a Nichols Avenue home.

Police charged both men with one count each of third-degree burglary, fourth-degree larceny, criminal mischief and conspiracy in April 2015.

Now the men are facing new charges of second-degree larceny, third-degree burglary, criminal mischief and conspiracy.

In the short time he has been an adult, Ranger has also racked up over a dozen convictions for larceny, violating probation, criminal mischief, interfering with an officer, threatening, breach of peace and illegal possession of shoplifting devices, according to court records.
