Two Hartford men are accused of stealing packages from homes in West Hartford.
West Hartford Police arrested 50-year-old Jose Navedo and 22-year-old Jose Cosme-Matos Thursday.
The investigation began when a witness reported a package theft on Beverly Road around 3 p.m. Thursday. The caller said the suspects were riding in a maroon Pontiac Grand Am with a broken brake light and tinted plate cover.
Officers found a vehicle matching the description in Hartford. Several packages were in the car, police said. Investigators said the suspects stole from four victims from the Beverly Road and Lexington Road area of West Hartford.
Navedo was charged with sixth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, operating an unregistered vehicle, misuse of plates, no insurance, and driving with a suspended license. Cosme-Matos was charged with sixth-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, and simple trespass.
Package thefts are common during the holiday season. Police encourage everyone to report suspicious behavior to local law enforcement.
