A Sandusky man accused of committing a local burglary must post a $10,000 bond before being released from custody.
The Norwalk Police Department arrested Teray M. Irby, 25, at 2:27 p.m. Tuesday on North Prospect Street. He was arrested on two Norwalk Municipal Court warrants and charged with burglary and a probation violation.
The suspected burglary happened April 13 on North Pleasant Street.
"Allegedly a pack of cigarettes and some money were stolen," Capt. Dave Smith said.
Victims were home at the time. Smith said there was a baby sitter taking care of the resident's children while the resident was sleeping.
"The subjects walked in ... and at least portrayed themselves as friends of the resident. The baby sitter didn't know them," Smith said, referring to the suspects.
"(Irby)'s not the only suspect, but it's unknown if the other person is charged yet," he added.
The incident happened about an hour before it was reported.
"It doesn't appear they were in there very long," Smith said.
Irby is prohibited from being on the victim's premises if he posts bond. If convicted of burglary, a fourth-degree felony, he faces six to 18 months behind bars.
The suspect also faces one count of carrying a concealed weapon in connection with an April 19 incident. Prosecutors filed the first-degree misdemeanor two days after the alleged offense.
