WESTPORT — A Stamford man and woman were charged with burglary and larceny in connection with a burglary incident that happened this fall, police said

On Oct. 26 at 2:45 p.m., Westport police were dispatched to a business on Elm Street on report of a burglary. While investigating this case, police said an additional burglary occurred in a separate office in the same building.

The investigating detective obtained surveillance footage of the incident, which police said showed a man and woman removing stolen property from the building. Stolen property was also reportedly found on the premises.

Police said Jonathan Acuna, 30, and Nemesis Velazquez, 23, were identified as suspects based on the footage. They were interviewed at their home and Acuna reportedly admitted to being involved in the crime, police said. Arrest warrants were then sought and granted.

On Jan. 7, Acuna and Velazquez turned themselves in for the active warrants. Both were charged with two counts of third-degree burglary, two counts of fourth-degree larceny, two counts of third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, and two counts of fourth-degree conspiracy to commit larceny.

Acuna and Velazquez posted $50,000 bond in total and are scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Norwalk on Feb. 19.
