Two Teens Arrested for Stealing iPhones at NCHS

Police on Wednesday arrested two Norwalk teenagers by warrant in connection with the theft of iPhones at New Canaan High School.

At about 7:50 p.m. on Feb. 2, an officer was dispatched to NCHS on a report that two iPhones had been stolen from separate backpacks left in the lobby area of the gym, police said.

New Canaan hosted Brien McMahon High School in a home basketball game that Friday night, according to the team’s schedule.

Other sports also were occurring at that time, police said, though a review of video surveillance led authorities to identify two male suspects seen stealing the devices.

Through a joint investigation of the New Canaan Police school resource officer and youth sergeant as well as Norwalk SROs, both suspects were identified, according to a police report.

The teens—one 16, the other 17—turned themselves in to New Canaan Police on Feb. 21 and were charged with fifth- and sixth-degree larceny, respectively.

Their cases were referred to the Juvenile Matters Division of Superior Court. Police withheld the teens’ names because of their ages.
