2 teens arrested, one sought after items stolen from Fairfield cars

Posted: Updated:

Police arrested two teens accused of stealing from cars in Fairfield on Friday, and are still looking for another suspect.

Police took two teens into custody near Grace Street off Jennings Road around 4:20 a.m. after a homeowner called 911 and reported seeing three people dressed in dark colored clothing and hoodies outside in the street.

When police arrived on scene, they say they found about five cars in the neighborhood had items stolen from them.

Police found two suspects hiding in backyards in the neighborhood and brought in a K-9 unit to track the third suspect.

 

A homeowner in the neighborhood shared surveillance video with News 12 that shows one of the suspects running and hiding from police in the home's driveway.

Police say it's the second time in less than a month they have been called out to the neighborhood.

A few weeks ago a drunk driver slammed into several cars along the street while trying to pull into a driveway.

Police say they could not locate the third suspect and are not naming the teens who were arrested because they are minors.

The two 17-year-olds were charged with five counts of burglary, conspiracy and criminal attempt to commit larceny, and larceny.

Both teens were released and issued a summons. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Fairfield police.
