NEW CANAAN — Five New Canaan teens were charged after they allegedly broke into a home under construction to drink inside the property.
Police were able to track down the teenagers after the homeowner saw the teens leaving the property on Sept. 20 around 10:15 p.m. and got the license plate number of the vehicle. The homeowner was alerted to the teens’ presence after they found 53 cans of Bud Light inside the master bedroom of the Proprietors Crossing property.
Police opened an investigation into the incident and identified three 16-year-old boys and two 17-year-old boys as the suspects responsible. All five are New Canaan residents.
All parties were issued infractions for possession of alcohol and juvenile summons for trespassing in the second-degree.
Police said they would not release any more information about this matter as it involved juveniles.
