Justin Zvonkovic, 18, of Tunxis Hill Cutoff, and a 17-year-old from Beaconview Drive were charged last week with stealing an iPhone from the basketball courts at McKinley School on Thompson Street.

The victim told police June 3 that he learned the identity of the 17-year-old from someone else, who reported that he had been approached them on Prince Street and asked if they wanted to buy an iPhone.

Officers went to the juvenile's home, and while there, he arrived home in a car driven by Zvonkovic, according to the report.

Both were charged with sixth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny and interfering an officer. The 17-year-old was released to his father's custody and is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on June 17.

Zvonkovic was held on a $250 bond and is scheduled to appear June17 in Bridgeport Superior Court.

Police said they received a complaint from the principal at McKinley that since the outdoor basketball courts at Fairfield Warde High School were shut down, teens have been coming to use the courts at the nearby elementary school, often while an after-school program is in session.
