Teenage Trio Steals Tablets, Sneakers, Gatorade Chews from South Avenue Man


New Canaan Police arrested three Norwalk teenagers Wednesday night after the trio attempted to steal three tablets, a pair of sneakers and some Gatorade pocket chews from a South Avenue resident.

At about 9:46 p.m. on Feb. 10, officers were dispatched to South Avenue on a report of a larceny that had just occurred, according to a police report.

The victim told police that he had posted several items online for sale—three Verizon tablets, a pair of Nike’s and the energy chews—and received a response from three men saying they’d pay $250 for them, the report said.

They parked in his driveway and, after he handed the items over, they left the scene without paying, the report said.

A witness captured the license plate information, and after it was broadcast to police departments in the area, Wilton Police found and held the suspect vehicle and its occupants, the report said.

Norwalk Police also assisted in the arrest of the three teens, the report said.

They each were charged with sixth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny.

Two of the men are 18-year-olds from Norwalk, and the third is a juvenile, police said.

The 18-year-olds were held on $500 bond and scheduled to appear Thursday in state Superior Court in Norwalk. The juvenile’s case was referred to the Juvenile Matters Division of state Superior Court in Stamford.
