PROSPECT — Two adults and one juvenile are facing burglary and larceny charges after police say they were found inside a home on Bronson Road with stolen items from the house in their car.

A Bronson Road resident called police at about 7 p.m. Jan. 14 and reported seeing a car driving up and down the road and slowing down in front of a house on the road, police reported. The neighbor reported the car pulled into the driveway of the home and she thought she saw flashlights moving around in the second floor of the house, police said.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Domenic M. Lanza, 19, of Waterbury, Jesse Lee Burns, 19, Prospect, and a 16-year-old, whose name wasn’t released due to his age, inside the house eating and watching TV. Police said items stolen from the house were found in their car.

Police said the homeowner, who was away at the time, knows the three people, but they had no reason to be at the house.

Lanza and Burns were charged with first-degree burglary, fifth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit fifth-degree larceny. They were arraigned in Waterbury Superior Court and released on bond. They are scheduled to appear in court again on Jan. 31, according to online judicial records.

The 16-year-old was charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit fourth-degree larceny.
