Alex Gutama, age 18, of Danbury, and four juveniles were arrested by Greenwich Police on Wednesday, May 8.

According to Capt. John Slusarz of the Greenwich Police multiple Greenwich officers were detailed in the area of 1 Scott Road on the report of a stolen vehicle.

When officers arrived the vehicle was leaving the property along with two other vehicles, fleeing behind, Slusarz said.

Eventually, all three vehicles were disabled, and the occupants fled from officers in two different directions.
