SHELTON, Conn. -- Three juveniles are facing a rash of charges in connection with a spree of nighttime vehicles burglaries that took place during the week of March 21 to 25, Shelton police said. 

Shelton Police Detective Christopher Nugent said the arrests were made with the assistance of the Waterbury Police Department, the Seymour Police Department, the Milford Police Department, and the Orange Police Department, who were able to link the juveniles to numerous car burglaries of unlocked vehicles. 

During the investigation, officers recovered a key to a vehicle stolen from Shelton, police said. Officers later located the vehicle in Waterbury, police said. 

The three juveniles arrested were each charged with: Seven counts of third-degree burglary; seven counts of third-degree conspiracy to commit burglary; seven counts of larceny; seven counts of sixth-degree conspiracy to commit larceny; first-degree larceny, and first degree conspiracy to commit larceny.

The charges stem from the Shelton investigation and more arrests are expected, Nugent said.

The names of the suspects were not released by police due to their ages. 

Residents are reminded to lock their vehicles at night and to remove valuables from their vehicles. Residents are also asked to contact their local police department if they observe suspicious activity in their neighborhood, said Nugent.
