The resident told police that the doors and windows were locked while they were gone for the day. But when the resident returned, items had been "disturbed' in the home, with someone entering through a window, police said.

Multiple pieces of jewelry, with a total value of $1,800, were gone, police said.

On Aug. 17, a Darien resident reported an attempted home burglary and gave police a license plate number, police said.

Norwalk police tracked down the car, which belonged to Bonilla, police said. A search of Bonilla's car turned up the "distinctive" jewelry that had been stolen in the New Canaan burglary, police said.

New Canaan officers questioned Bonilla and Aguirre, and they confessed to the Smith Ridge Road burglary, police said.
