PLYMOUTH - Police have arrested two women accused of breaking into an apartment and a vehicle at a low-income housing complex for elderly residents and those with a disability.

Rachel Groll, 30, of 467 Farmington Ave., Bristol, and Tina Seckington, 39, of 34 Gosinski Park, each face two counts of third-degree burglary and sixth-degree larceny.

On May 20, police said, Groll and Seckington forcibly entered an apartment and a vehicle within Gosinski Park - a federally funded housing complex for the elderly and the disabled. According to police, the pair specifically target residents who they knew were recovering in a convalescent home or a hospital.

Groll, who was charged on Saturday, is free on $100,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in New Britain Superior Court on Aug. 24.

Seckington, who was arrested on June 24, is being held on $100,000 bond. She is due back in court on Aug. 31.
