Four Teens Arrested After Chase from Westport to Guilford

Four teens were arrested after a police chase that started in Westport and ended in Guilford early Monday morning.

Westport police reached out to state police just before 3 a.m. Monday and said they were chasing two cars, including an Acura wanted in connection with several vehicle break-ins, and ended the chase at exit 18, but the car was speeding north on Interstate 95.

Staff from the state Department of Transportation used highway cameras and saw the vehicle near exit 25, then it stopped at exit 30, where everyone got out of the car and into a silver Hyundai, which had been stolen, according to state police.

DOT continued to track the car and police used stop sticks to stop it at exit 59 in Guilford, where troopers took four teens into custody. 

Jordan Butler, 18 of Waterbury, was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under suspension, reckless driving, engaging police in a pursuit, risk of injury to a child, second-degree larceny and three counts of second-degree reckless endangerment.

Bond was set at $25,000 and he is due in court.

The three juveniles were issued juvenile summons and they were released to the custody of their parents.
