Maplewood Police arrested two people in connection with a burglary on Elmwood Avenue Thursday afternoon. At around 3 p.m., officers responded to an unoccupied home on the 200 block of Elmwood Avenue to investigate a report of two people trespassing on the property, said Sgt. Christopher Black. Police found 56-year-old Yvette Pugh of Irvington walking away from the area; Pugh fit the description of one of the two people and police arrested her and charged her with trespassing, said Black.
