Police: 2 suspects, possible 3rd, likely behind string of break-ins
Milford police say three burglars could be behind dozens of break-ins across southwestern Connecticut.
Police believe two of the suspects currently in custody are responsible for at least a dozen break-ins into backyard tool sheds throughout the region. They say the suspects stole yard equipment believed to be worth more than $10,000. 
Authorities say Kelvin Quintero and Noel Figueroa-Flores are now facing burglary and larceny charges.
"We believe that the items that were taken are going to hopefully solve burglaries in communities such as North Haven, New Haven, West Haven, maybe as far as Branford and Madison as well," says officer Mike DeVito of the Milford police. 
Police say they caught the pair breaking into a shed Wednesday morning. Both were nabbed after crashing their van into a police cruiser on I-95.
Authorities are still searching for a third suspect. They say they have identified him, but they do not have him in custody yet.
A Milford Superior Court judge set Noel Figueroa-Flores and Quintero's bond at $200,000 each.
