    Naugatuck Police Department
    Phillip Kelly and Jamie Perugini are accused of stealing metal parts from soccer goals in Naugatuck and selling them as scrap metal.

    Naugatuck police have arrested a man and woman accused of taking apart soccer goals in town and stealing metal parts worth more than $10,000 to sell as scrap metal.

    Phillip Kelly, 37, and Jamie Perugini, 35, are facing charges.

    Police said they disassembled about 10 soccer goals at Rotary Field in Naugatuck late last month and stole parts valued at more than $10,000. Some of those parts turned up at a local scrap metal yard.

    Kelly and Perugini were each charged with second-degree larceny, criminal trespass, first-degree criminal mischief and conspiracy to commit all three. Perugini was additionally charged with interfering with an investigation.

    It's not clear if either has an attorney.
