Two local teens have been arrested in Danbury, as part of the police department's initiative to end the recent string of vehicle break-ins and thefts.

Unfortunately for us, these crimes have become quite the trend throughout Greater Danbury, but at least we can rest just a bit easier knowing that the local law enforcement agencies are doing their very best to tackle the situation.

According to a press release from the Danbury Police Department, two 17-year-old male juveniles were arrested after officers responded to the area of 10 Ryders Lane at about 7:36 AM on Thursday morning (July 27) on a report that people were trying to enter cars parked in the area. Police say that shortly after responding to the call, they found the two teens to be in possession of several items that were reported stolen from overnight car break-ins in that very section of Danbury.

Both juveniles were arrested and charged with criminal attempted larceny, conspiracy to commit burglary, and two counts of larceny. One of the them has additional charges related to drugs and credit card theft.

Additionally, police say one of the teens had been released from juvenile detention just days ago and has been remanded to custody, while the other was released on a promise to appear in court.

Despite these two arrests, police say we're not out of the woods yet. Greater Danbury continues to see cars being broken into and in some cases, even stolen. For example, this Lexus IS 300 was reported stolen from right from a resident's driveway in Summitview in Danbury in the early hours of Thursday morning (July 27). According to the owner of the vehicle, the car was spotted at the Days Inn in Bethel and was also reportedly seen on I-84 in Danbury. If you happen to have any information on the whereabouts of the vehicle, please contact the Danbury Police Department:

The DPD reminds all residents to keeps their car doors locked and to secure all of their valuables.
