Two teens have been arrested and charged in a home break-in and burglary in Hamden and they are also suspected of trying to force their way into a vehicle.
Police responded to a home on Blue Hills Avenue at 2:45 p.m. on April 11 to investigate a larceny and a resident said she had parked her vehicle in her driveway and was sitting in the car when two girls approached her and tried to get into it. When the victim called Hamden police, the two teens ran.
As police were investigating that case, they learned that the two girls had burglarized a home on Battis Road, according to police.
A resident had come home to find a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl standing in her kitchen and told police the two girls ran toward Circular Avenue.
The teens had gotten into the home by cutting a screen and damaging a window frame, then stole jewelry, electronic equipment and prescription medication, according to police.
An officer soon found two girls in the area of Circular Avenue and Plains Road and recovered several items that had been stolen.
Both live at the Children’s Center, at 1400 Whitney Ave. in Hamden, according to police.
The girls were charged with criminal attempt to commit carjacking, conspiracy to commit carjacking, burglary in the third degree, larceny in the fifth degree and criminal mischief in the third degree.
They are scheduled to appear in juvenile court on April 24.
