Several rental car receipts were found along with the items, which included cell phones, cameras, laptops, CDs, video games and wallets, according to Ferullo.
Police found signs of forced entry at the Lyons Plains Road home, and Abraham had jewelry allegedly taken from the residence in his pockets, police said.
Weston police are asking any other law-enforcement who may wish to interview the suspects for their possible role in crimes committed in their communities, or anyone who may have information about the suspects, to call Weston police headquarters at 203-222-2600.
