    Teens Charged in Convenience Store Burglary

    An 18-year-old woman and a 15-year-old boy have been arrested and charged in a burglary at a Coventry convenience store early Wednesday morning.

    Police responded to a burglary alarm at On The Go convenience store, at 1657 Boston Turnpike, at
    1:39 a.m. on Wednesday and found a plate glass window had been shattered.

    The burglars were gone, but police reviewed surveillance footage and knew what the burglars looked like, according to police.

    Around three hours later, a Coventry Police officer saw two suspicious people in a Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot who matched the descriptions of the burglars.

    The Dunkin’ Donuts was not yet open and the two people ran behind a large trash bin.

    Police pursued and arrested Rachel Reames, 18, of Coventry, and a 15-year-old boy.

    Both were charged with third-degree criminal attempt to commit burglary and third-degree criminal mischief.

    They were released and are due in court at a later time.
