ORANGE, Conn. (AP) - A 69-year-old Connecticut man and his 23-year-old son are facing a total of 75 charges in connection with a string of home burglaries.

Police say John Connelly, and his son, Michael Connelly, both of New Haven, have been connected to seven burglaries in Orange in February and March in which police say small but valuable items including jewelry and watches were stolen, then sold.

Police say the Connellys were linked to the burglaries after they were pulled over on March 4, allegedly with drugs in their vehicle which they intended to sell.

Between the pair, they face 75 charges, including larceny, drug offenses and criminal mischief.

Both are being held on bail in excess of $100,000 pending a May 2 court appearance. It’s not clear if they have a lawyer.
