Ansonia police arrested four teens early Wednesday after an officer allegedly saw two of them trying to break into a Maple Street market.
Officer Matthew Macero was on patrol in the area of Olson Drive at 3:17 a.m. when he saw the two males attempting to get into the Banana Market at 11 Maple St., according to a press release from Lt. Andrew Cota.
Macero watched the two males try to get into the store and then flee when the alarm sounded, Cota said.
They jumped into a vehicle that was parked in front of the building and fled at a high rate of speed. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle but couldn’t before it crashed into a parked vehicle on Holbrook Street.
Police then found four people inside the vehicle and took them into custody.
Three of them — one male and two females, all from Woodbridge — were not identified by police because they are 17 years old. They were charged with conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary and released to their parents with a Nov. 7 court date at Waterbury Juvenile Court.
The fourth person, identified as Tyler Larkin, 19, of Quail Road in Woodbury, was charged with attempted third-degree burglary, engaging a police officer in pursuit, failure to obey a signal of an officer, going the wrong way on a one-way street, traveling unreasonably fast, reckless driving, and three counts of risk of injury to a minor.
Police said Larkin was held on $5,000 bond.
