3 teenagers charged in thefts from motor vehicles


MYSTIC — A Westerly teenager and two juveniles were charged early Tuesday morning in connection with a series of motor vehicle break-ins. Jeffrey Barnas, 18, of 23 Cross St., Westerly, was charged with third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, larceny by possession, simple trespass, and possession of narcotics.

Two juveniles, ages 16 and 17, were charged with interfering with an officer, third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary, third-degree burglary, larceny by possession and simple trespass.

The incident began at 2 a.m. Tuesday in the area of Pequot Avenue, on the Groton side of the Mystic River. Groton Town Police responded to the area in response to a report of males breaking into a motor vehicle.

Upon arrival, one subject was immediately apprehended and the area was “saturated” with police officers, according to the report filed by Groton Police Lt. Jeffrey W. Scribner. This included town police and the Connecticut State Police K-9 unit.

Once deployed, the K-9 unit immediately led police to the other two suspects who were taken into custody.

In covering the scene, police discovered a large amount of property, indicating that more than one vehicle was involved. Police have asked residents with missing property in the Pequot Avenue/High Street area to contact Police Officer Kyle LoPriore.
