FAIRFIELD — Officers arrested three Bridgeport teens suspected of stealing items from cars early last Thursday morning after a brief pursuit.
Police said they were called to the area of Buena Vista Road and Wilson Street in Fairfield — which had seen recent thefts — on a report of suspicious persons just before 2:45 a.m. July 6. When a patrol car arrived, three teens in the area fled through backyards in the neighborhood, according to police.
Officers and Fairfield and Milford K-9s tracked two of the teens to a garage and one to a nearby backyard, police said. Five nearby cars had been entered and stolen from, according to police, and the teens were caught with cash, headphones, credit cards and an iPhone, among items from the cars.
The teens — two 16-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy, all from Bridgeport — were issued juvenile summons. They were each charged with five counts of conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary and five counts of conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny. The three boys were given July 14 court dates.
