Stratford Teen Arrested In Vehicle Break-in

An early Sunday morning vehicle break-in in Stratford has resulted in charges against a city teen.

Stratford police say the owner saw a male entering his parked vehicle in the 300 block of Birmingham St. early Sunday and gave chase and caught the 17-year-old suspect.

A brief struggle ensued and the young male ran off.

The vehicle owner called police and provided a description of the suspect and he was located later in the morning and arrested.

Police say he is known to them, and was recently released on several unrelated charges including breaching his probation.

The male was held in custody pending a bail hearing today.
