Two teenagers tried to steal a Razor scooter and a bike from a Collingwood Avenue garage Thursday morning.
Romario Henry, 19, and a 16-year-old juvenile broke into the garage around 10:30 a.m., and Henry tried to take off on the scooter while the juvenile tried to flee on the bicycle, police said. When they were confronted by the homeowner, the suspects fled on foot, according to the report. They were stopped by Bridgeport police on Park Avenue. They had another stolen bicycle with them, police said, and investigators were attempting to determine where it came from.
Henry, who lives on Fairview Avenue in Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary, sixth-degree larceny, criminal attempt to commit sixth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny by possession. He was held on $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear July 21 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
The 16-year-old, also from Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary and criminal attempt to commit sixth-degree larceny. He is scheduled to appear in juvenile court July 18.
