GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) - A Greenwich teen has been charged with staging a home invasion at his own house.

The 17-year-old, whose name has not been released, faces charges including burglary, larceny and filing a false police report.

The Greenwich Time reports (https://bit.ly/1Ah43Za ) the teen called police on Nov. 17 and said two masked men had broken into his house, assaulted him and taken $11,500 in jewelry.

Police say their investigation found the teen conspired with a friend to steal the jewelry and make it look like a home invasion. They say another arrest is expected.

The 17-year-old is due in Juvenile Court on Dec. 16.
