Fairfield police: Bridgeport teens busted for stealing from cars

Posted: Updated:

Two teenagers from Bridgeport are accused of stealing from cars in Fairfield, according to police.

Law enforcement was called to Grace Street early Friday where teens were busted for allegedly stealing from cars. Police say they had items from at least five of them.

Two of the three suspects were found hiding in backyards. Police set up a perimeter and brought in a K-9 to track down the third, but he remains at large.

"Everyone wants to wake up and go to work, nobody wants to deal with anything sketchy," said Eddie Rivera, who lives in Fairfield.

Police say all the cars hit were unlocked.
