Wayne police busted three teens who they said were carrying generic Xanax stolen from a resident's car when they were stopped for a traffic violation Thursday afternoon.

Bill Mendez-Geraldino, 18, Engel Paulino-Gomez, 19, both of Passaic, and Michael Acosta-Granados, 18, of Paterson were released pending court appearances on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property, drug possession and conspiracy, Detective Capt. Dan Daly said.

Wayne detectives were conducting a follow-up investigation, Daly said, asking that anyone with information that could help them call: (973) 633-3530.

While police are "vigilantly patrolling to protect" residents, the captain asked citizens to also remember to lock their vehicles and take their keys.
