    Teens Suspected in Connecticut Car Burglaries

    Two teenagers have been arrested in connection to reported car break-ins and the theft of a purse and wine in Hamden, police said.

    Police responded to the area of Greenway and Woodlawn streets to investigate suspicious activity reported. Three teenagers were looking through parked cars and trespassing through yards in the area, police said they learned in the investigation. One of the vehicles had signs of forced entry.

    Police found two suspects walking close by and one of them had a woman's purse with several bottles of wine inside, police said.

    Police arrested two Hamden teens, 16 and 17, charging them with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal trespass and interfering with a police officer. It's unclear whether there are any other suspects.

    The teens will appear in New Haven Juvenile Court, but the court date has not been released.

    The burglaries remain under investigation.
