Woman Faces More Charges in Westport Burglaries

WESTPORT, Conn. – A Stamford woman turned herself in to Westport police on a warrant charging her with a December home burglary, police said.

Lauren Yaeger, 20, was first arrested on Dec. 22 after she was found walking in the area of Burritts Landing at 1 a.m., where several burglaries had been reported that month. She was charged with interfering with an officer and third-degree criminal trespass.

Westport resident Jamal Washington, who was reportedly with Yaeger, also was arrested Dec. 22, police said.

A man matching his description was spotted running in the area, police said. But Washington wasn't arrested until later, after he'd taken a taxi for Fairfied. Police were waiting for him there and apprehend him after he tried to run away, police said.

He was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal trespass, interfering with an officer and criminal violation of a protective order.

There were four reported burglaries in the Burritts Landing area between Dec. 10 and Dec. 19: three on Burritts Landing and one on Judy Point. A fifth burglary was reported Dec. 14 on Imperial Avenue .

The warrant that Yaeger turned herself in on charges her with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree larceny. Police said evidence from one of the December burglaries was found in the trunk of the car that Yaeger was operating.

Yaeger was released after posting a $25,000 bond and is due in court on Thursday.
