A Stratford man was charged Tuesday at state Superior Court in Bridgeport in connection with the theft of jewelry from a Crest Terrace home.

Severo Santiago, 45, of East Main Street, was charged with third-degree burglary and conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary. He was held on a $5,000 bond and was arraigned that same day.

Police allege that Santiago broke into the home last Dec. 8, and took several thousand dollars worth of jewelry.
