Three teenagers are in hot water with the law after being busted in an allegedly stolen vehicle while “looking for a party,” police said.

Darien Police officers received a report of a suspicious vehicle on Hoyt Street at approximately 10:15 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17 that was idling in a resident’s driveway.

According to police, upon arrival, the officers found a red Toyota SUV in the drive, occupied with three teenagers from Stamford, who stated that they got lost looking for a party.

A routine check of the vehicle’s license information revealed that the Toyota was reported stolen out of Stamford, police said. When confronted with that information, the driver said that he had borrowed the SUV from a friend.

All three teens - two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old - were taken into custody and transported to Darien Police Headquarters, where they were charged with third-degree grand larceny of a motor vehicle.

After being processed, the teens were released to the custody of their parents and scheduled to appear in Stamford Juvenile Court at a later date to respond to the charges.
