Two teens arrested in Fairfield
FAIRFIELD — Two teens from Danbury are facing charges after one of them allegedly broke into a car on Carlynn Drive Tuesday night.
Police received a call shortly after 7 p.m. from a Carlynn Drive resident who saw a group of five teens walk up the street from Beach Road and split up into different directions. He said one of the teens tried to open the door of a neighbor’s car. When he found it was locked, the teenager tried to open other car doors, until he found an unlocked Honda CRV and climbed inside.
Police located the juveniles, although one of them, they said, tried to run and in doing so, broke down a section of a wooden fence at a Beach Road home.
The teen who was seen trying to enter the cars was charged with three counts of attempted third-degree burglary and one count of third-degree burglary. The other, who broke the fence, was charged with criminal mischief and interfering with police. Both teens are 17 years old and are from Danbury. The other three were not charged.
The court date for the juveniles was not available.
