French Street home robbed, but by whom?

Tewksbury Police are continuing to investigate a robbery that took place at 100 French St., sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
According to a TPD report, at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, a 911 call was received by Essex Regional Dispatch, from someone claiming that they were being robbed while walking down the street. The call was lost and Tewksbury Dispatch was notified. Tewksbury Dispatch called the number back and the male who answered said there was a mistake. He said his name was "Robbie" and that his 7-year-old brother had been fooling with his phone. He refused to give his location.
At this point, Dispatch contacted Sprint Wireless, which "pinged" the phone and ID'd the location as being around French Street. Officers were dispatch to the area and located and detained two individuals, one of whom was bleeding from a cut. During the course of the investigation, they also located blood on the ground outside of 100 French St.
Adam J. Dias, 24, 48 Vernon St., #9, Bradford and Roland Levesque, 41 Grandite Road, Effington, NH, were taken into Protective Custody. An ambulance was requested for the individual who was bleeding but he declined treatment.
On Sunday, at 4:14 p.m., the owner of the home at 100 French St. called police and reported that her home had been robbed at some time overnight. She said a 50-inch TV had been stolen. An officer was sent to the residence to speak to the woman and filed a report.
No further details were immediately available but Chief Timothy Sheehan said the investigation is active and ongoing.

Usually the presents are found UNDER the tree

The woman said she had asked people around the lot but could not locate the owner. The bracelet was taken and placed near the front window.
