PLAINFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Plainfield police investigated several car break-ins and car thefts early Tuesday morning and at one point arrested a juvenile.
At around 4:09 a.m., police received a report of a Nissan Rogue stolen from Charolette Drive in the Wauregan section of Plainfield.
An officer saw the Nissan and another vehicle, a Kia Sedona later confirmed to be stolen out of Hebron, speeding on Norwich Road. Police observed both vehicles try to turn left onto Academy Hill Road when the Kia collided with the Nissan.
The Kia then struck two parked vehicles at American Rides LLC. One person left the Kia and ran off toward Cemetery Road.

Meanwhile, two people ran off from the Nissan toward Sam’s Food Mart, entering the treeline. A K-9 unit investigated the area with no results.
