WESTPORT - With the help of live streaming video and good police work, three people suspected of breaking into cars at the Greens Farms railroad station were caught Wednesday morning.
Lt. Eric Woods said police officers went to the station on a report of “suspicious people” attempting to make entry into vehicles.
“While patrol officers were responding to the scene, members of the Westport Police Detective Bureau began monitoring the live streaming video from Greens Farms station. Detectives were able to locate the suspects on camera, monitor their activities and update responding units,” Woods said in a statement.
“The first arriving units immediately located two males wearing dark clothing and watched as they attempted to gain entry into at least two different vehicles by lifting or manipulating door handles.
“While patrol was investigating the incident, detectives were able to positively identify the suspects that patrol was speaking with as those captured on video surveillance. A third suspect was found hiding in a vehicle that they drove to Greens Farms Station. Video surveillance also captured the suspects attempting to steal a vehicle, but retreated as patrol officers arrived on scene.”
Woods said the the quick response from patrol, as well as the immediate response from detectives to pull the available video feeds, led to the arrest of three people.
Jancarlos Cabral, 20, of Bronx, N.Y., was charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit second-degree larceny, third-degree burglary and criminal attempt at third-degree burglary. He was also held on $10,000 bond.
Adelmir Oliva, 19, of Bronx, N.Y. was arrested on the same charges along with and possession of marijuana. He was also held on $10,000 bond.
A juvenile was also arrested and is being held in the Bridgeport Juvenile Detention Center.
