SOUTHINGTON— Officers interrupted three suspects stealing the tires off of a rented 2023 Toyota Camry while conducting a check of the parking lot of Homewood Suites Tuesday morning, police said.
Shortly before 5 a.m., while following the sounds of metal hitting the ground, officers found a green colored Honda, Accord with a stolen license plate, BA-08309, and what appeared to be two masked males, police said.
Officers attempted to stop the suspects, but they entered the vehicle and accelerated at a high rate of speed out of the parking lot located at 1096 West St. and onto the I-84 east ramp towards Hartford.
Officers obtained evidence from the scene and it is being processed in hopes of identifying the suspect(s).
A photo of the suspect’s vehicle was obtained (currently believed to have heavy driver’s side damage) and anyone who has information or observes this vehicle is asked to call Southington police, Officer Lanza, at 860-621-0101.
