Two Easton residents were arrested in Norton Thursday on a number of charges related to a housebreaks.

Brothers Steven Girouard, 27, and Joseph Girouard, 30, of 199 Depot St., Easton were charged with breaking and entering in the daytime, larceny from a building, possession of burglarious tools, and possession of stolen property.

Norton Police Lt. Todd Jackson said in a statement Thursday that the arrests were made when Norton Police were patroling the areas of Patlena and Reinhardt Drive areas where recent house breaks and copper thefts had occurred. Police responded when dispatch received a call reporting a man "hiding in the bushes" possibly breaking into a house.

The brothers were stopped in the area and, after police spoke with nearby residents, were placed under arrest.

"Further investigation by Det. James Franco and Det. Todd Bramwell revealed that the two brothers were linked to a house break at a residence on Patlena Drive," Jackson said." Detectives spoke with homeowners, who were not home and not aware their house had been broken into.  The property found on the Girouard brothers was identified by the homeowners."

Both suspects were held on $10,000 cash bail and will appear in Attleboro District Court Friday.
