Police: School note left in stolen car led to arrest


Police in Connecticut say a school note left in a stolen car led to the arrest of a 15-year-old on larceny charges.

Shelton Police Detective Richard Bango says a car dealership was burglarized and had two vehicles stolen on Oct. 26. The Connecticut Post reports police say another vehicle was stolen on Sunday from a different dealership.

Bango says one of the stolen vehicles from the first dealership and the one from the second were recovered, and police found a school note in one of the cars. The note led police to a 15-year-old juvenile student in Bridgeport.

The student, who was not identified, has been charged with two counts of burglary and larceny each.

Bango says more arrests are expected in the case.
