Elizabeth Township police have charged three suspects in connection with a June 11 home break-in along Turkeyfoot Road.

Police made the arrest after reviewing video surveillance footage of the alleged burglary in process, which was discovered by a homeowner who went home for lunch.

Police reviewing other recent burglaries in the township were able to identify the suspects in the video and their vehicle, said township police Chief Robert McNeilly.

Christopher Cousineau, 36, of Bethel Park and Charles Howsare, 30, of Brentwood are charged with criminal trespassing, burglary, criminal conspiracy, theft, receiving stolen property, and criminal mischief.

Also charged in connection with the break-in is Autum Rae Dusky, 25, of Brentwood. She is charged with criminal conspiracy and receiving stolen property.

Police are continuing to investigate whether the suspects are connected with other recent break-ins in the township.

“We're hoping these arrests prevent additional burglaries from occurring,” said McNeilly.
