SHELTON–Months after a home invasion was reported, police have made another arrest.

Oscar Rosado, 32, of Bridgeport, was arrested on Wednesday in connection to a January home invasion in Shelton. He is charged with home invasion, robbery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit robbery in the first degree, unlawful restraint in the second degree and conspiracy to commit unlawful restraint in the second degree.

Last week, Francisco Colon-Cotto, 23, of Bridgeport, was in Bridgeport Superior Court, where he was appearing on another unrelated charge. He was charged in this case with the same charges as Rosado.

He was held on $250,000 bond and also charged with failure to appear in court for another incident.

According to Shelton Police, on January 8, 2016, around 10:30 a.m. William Frascatore, 36, of Shelton, called 911 to report someone had broken into his home. When police arrived Frascatore said two people entered through an open door, surprised him in his bedroom and tied him up. They stole jewelry and a cell phone, then drove off in a silver Honda Accord with a loud muffler.

While investigating, police found a marijuana grow operation in Frascatore’s basement, and they seized plants, dried marijuana and growing equipment. Frascatore was arrested for the marijuana operation at the time and charged with cultivation of marijuana, operating a drug factory, possession of marijuana more than 4 ounces, possession with intent to sell, use of drug paraphernalia and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
